Alvarinho wine pairing with sushi
If you are a sushi lover, or have a soft spot for Sriracha, Alvarinho Vinho Verde should be your go-to wine.
Considered one of the greatest white wines of Portugal.
Alvarinho its variety of grapes cultivated particularly in the sub-region of Monção and Melgaço, but given its quality, it has been carried to other parts of the region and the country.
The wine is characterized by an intense straw color, with citrus reflections, an intense, distinctive and complex aroma, ranging from quince, peach, banana, lemon, passion fruit and lychee, to orange and violet blossoms, hazelnut and walnut, and honey, with a complex, soft, round, smooth, full-bodied and persistent flavor.
Alvarinho delivers a mouth-watering blend of minerality and tropicality that pairs beautifully with seafood and spicy dishes.
It is classic with seafood, but also loved it with Indian dishes such as chicken tikka masala. My personal favorite pairing is with pad thai—the nutty/savory component of the pad thai plays off the freshness of the Alvarinho.
We have available the Alvarinho wine ENCOSTA DO XISTO - ALVARINHO 2015.
