The combination of Alvarinho and Trajadura grape varieties is something known in the wine’s market for making an elegant, fruity and distinct wine, a true symbiosis to create a harmonious and balanced wines.
So, in this month of February, the month of Love, we decided to talk about a “relationship” so cohesive that it is intended for great criticism by our consumers: Alvarinho – Trajadura Casa Santa Eulália
About the Grapes
Alvarinho is planted all over the world, but it’s in the Northwest of Portugal where it acquires and reveals all its characteristics and qualities, thanks to the very particular microclimate and granitic soil of the region. Alvarinho is considered, by some experts in the global wine market, as one of the best wines in the world.
Aromatic notes of Alvarinho: In general, aromatic notes of peach, lemon, orange peel, jasmine, orange blossom and lemon balm. It has a great aging potential and a high alcohol content.
In the Vinho Verde region, the grape variety has an excellent production, as it allows wine of good graduation, moderate acidity, is often used in batches as a “softener” tool for the region’s wines.
Aromatic notes of the Trajadura: Reveals discrete aromas of peach, apricot, apple and ripe pear, with some sensations of orange blossom.
In fact, when we combine these varieties, we realize that complementarity is inherent.
