Chamlija Reserve 2015 Alvarinho

Points : 8,5/10

Price : 75 TL at the Chamlija’s winery

I love Albariño, the Spanish grapevine for its acidity and floral flavours.

If Chamlija’s Albariño is typical, this other bottle with a Portuguese name is on a completely different level.

This is a very classy wine.

Albariño goes perfectly well with a mild curry but the Alvarinho couldn’t take it.

This is a fine dining wine.

It has elegance and complexity.

The nose has sweet lemon and white peach aromas. The palate takes possession of your mouth with its slightly creamy texture full of peach, apricot, exotic fruit and vanilla flavours.

It’s very well balanced with a medium high acidity.

I would recommend this wine with white meat in a creamy sauce or with some sole fish meunière.
