(2023) Make no mistake, the co-op of Monção is a superb wine producer, and a leader for the whole Vinho Verde region. This wine, made from Alvarinho, echoes the Albariños of Galica, just across the border. The nose is exotically fruity, herby and lemony, with an ozone breeziness. It bursts onto the palate, so much zesty, pure citrus freshness, a tangy but tropical hint of mango, then a thrillingly bright. Long finish. Terrific.
