Weight: 2W

Varietal: Loureiro   Pederna    Azal

Region: Vinho Verde, Minho, Portugal

The name "Azahar" translates to citrus flower in Arabic, and it is both a nod to Muslim communities who planted orange trees in the Minho region of Portugal centuries ago, and to this wine's distinctive floral characteristic on the nose. On the palate, tart green fruit and a shining minerality make it utterly refreshing and approachable. A classic porch pounder that will also pair beautifully with light dishes.
