2012 Quinta de Gomariz “Colheita Sellecionada” Alvarinho

A beautiful wine, knife-sharp and fresh on the edge, rounded on the back with floral delicacy. Citrus, passionfruit, and white florals waft up from the glass on the nose. Lime and blood oranges lead, moving toward melon on the mid-palate, all with citrus zing and a hint of salinity. Fresh-squeezed lime and grapefruit pith linger on the finish. Drink with grilled shrimp. Highly recommended (92). DH
