Grape Varieties - Alvarinho/Albariño

Alvarinho/Albariño
You might like to try...

This is a very old variety originating almost certainly in northern Portugal or Galicia immediately to the north. Due to a labeling error that occurred in Galicia, much Albariño stock that has been exported was, in fact, Savagnin Blanc, including a great percentage of the plants sent to Australia. It is likely that Alvarinho is related to Loureiro, another local in this part of the world.
