Regueiro Alvarinho Reserva == great white!

Vinho Verde is the biggest wine producing region in Portugal, located up in the cool, rainy, verdant north west. The vines grow in fertile, granite soils along rivers that flow from the mountains of the east and burst out into the ocean between golden surfing beaches. From this unique region and its native grapes comes a unique white wine. 

Recognized as one the foremost boutique producers of old-school Alvarinho in Portugal, Quinta do Regueiro is fast becoming synonymous with top shelf avant garde white wines.  This is a wine that you can age for up to 5 years too, unlike a lot of Vinho Verde producers

2018 Regueiro Alvarinho Reserva...$19.99
From the sub-region of Monção and Melgaço, this wine has perfumed fragrant fruitiness with hints of a creamy texture. It is rich and full in the mouth, touched by spice and pepper and likely to age for a while. It will be ready to drink from early 2020.
