Vinho Verde is coming of age before our eyes as a wine region. Long regarded as a source for cheap, lightly fizzy wine, there’s a growing sense of identity, and sub-regional specialty in this large and diverse country. The northernmost of Vinho Verde’s nine subregions is called Melgaco & Moncao, right across the river from Spain’s Rias Baixas and devoted to the same variety; Alvarinho (called Albarino in Spain). Drawn from an array of tiny garden vineyard plots in crumbly granite soil along the southern bank of the Minho river, this is a serious bottle of wine for under $15. Similar to the Rias Baixas wines on the opposite bank of the river, the Nortico opens with rich aromas of peach, lemon and lime and yellow apple, with a distinctly salty note borne on the Atlantic winds. While the wine has keen acidity, there’s no fizz here, no trapped CO2. This is a solidly built, bright and mouthwatering white that reaches every corner of the palate with white fruits, citrus oil, granite and salty minerality. If you haven’t tried this more serious sort of Vinho Verde, this easy to purchase bottle of Alvarinho would be an excellent place to start. Great for all occasions, especially those featuring seafood.
