Portugal’s Douro Valley has been producing wine for longer than most ““ the Port variety ““ but today there is something else happening as in amazing dry reds and whites. An example of the later is Delaforce’s Alvarino. It’s medium-bodied, hitting you with a curve ball spinning through areas of refreshment, savoury, earthiness and nourishment. Almost Chardonnay in personality, but a lot less glamorous. The perfect all-rounder, all evening white ““ with a lot of personality for the price.
