WHAT MAKES THIS WINE UNIQUE?
Nortico is from tiny vineyard plots in Moncao and Melgaço, on the border with Spain's Galicia province - the best Alvarinho-growing area in Portugal. Unlike other wines from the larger Vinho Verde area, Nortico has no added CO2, making for a richer, fuller, well-balanced wine that showcases its maritime influence with a kiss of salinity on the finish. Albarino/Alvarinho is the grape to watch for age worthy, world-class wines, and this is a perfect introduction.

This is a young, fresh white wine with the characteristic bright acidity and aromas of peach and grapefruit. Nortico is light and delicate, lovely as a "porch-sipping wine" to drink on its own. Have it simply with corn bread and butter like country folks do in Portugal. Also a terrific seafood wine, particularly with salty, fattier dishes like fish tacos or broiled oysters.
