The brand Tapada dos Monges arises as a tribute to the monks who, in the 12th Century, introduced winemaking to this region.
The single variety Alvarinho is born, using the most renowned grape variety of the region. Selected for the special attributes it carries, Alvarinho stands out with its aromatic intensity and fruity character with mineral notes. It completes the Tapada dos Monges range in the most perfect way.
The true Nobility of Vinho Verde is reflected in Tapada dos Monges Alvarinho. It is a White Wine, made from the most aristocratic variety of the region, presenting a yellow citrine colour and enthralling aromas, full of fruit, orange peel and mineral notes. On the mouth it is lively, with elegant acidity that enhances the freshness on the palate. The lingering finish and its aromatic persistence bring a grand finale to this exquisite and harmonious wine. It is perfect with exotic dishes of fish and shellfish.
