On the Iberian peninsula, one grape belongs to two different countries and is called by two different names: Albarino in Spain, Alvarihno in Portugal. Either way, it makes an underrated white wine that is fabulous with seafood and shellfish. This is serious Vinho Verde, and is pretty different from the slightly sweet and spritzy style that dominates backyard summer gatherings. The vines are located along the Minho River in Northern Portugal. This is a richer style than most in the area and boasts a lot of tropical fruit notes with some underlying citrus!
