2015 Pouco Comum, Alvarinho, Minho VR, Portugal

In Spain this variety is known as Albariño, in Portugal they call it Alvarinho. Regardless, it is an excellent variety for this part of the world. This wine is restrained and herbal, with notes of hops, wet stone and almonds. The palate is medium bodied with a crisp dry finish and delicate mouthfeel. It is a perfect pairing for all manner of seafood, poultry and pork dishes (try the classic Portuguese pork and clams dish). Drink now to 2020.
