The 2016 Branco Quinta da Aveleda is a 70/30 blend of Loureiro and Alvarinho, dry, crisp and showing just a hint of spritz on swirling, but no real added carbonation. This is a reliable performer at a nice price most every year, usually punching well above its weight. So, too, this year. Showing beautiful tension on the finish, this ends with some dried herbs and that very fresh feel. There is good concentration for the level this year, too. Of course, this is not the level where you get lots of depth and big, fat wines, but the focus and crispness serve this--and you--well. As Aveleda has periodically proven to me, they hold shockingly well, too, if well stored. (MS)
