Platinum: Best Northern Portuguese White, 95pts Decanter Magazine

 

“A premium wine. Exotic and inviting with aromas of grapefruit, apples and wild flowers with some steeliness and minerality. Refreshing and dry with an excellent concentration of fruit and a creamy mouth-feel. Elegant and refined.” - Platinum: Best Northern Portuguese White, 95pts Decanter Magazine


“This shows all the hallmarks of Soalheiro, fresh, clean and lively. It is a pointed wine that seems a bit on the lean side, but it is very tightly wound, utterly gripping on the juicy finish and perfectly focused. There is some of that invigorating green this bottling tends to have, too. If you like them crisp and dry, with that laser-like burst of acidity, this is an easy choice at a nice price. Stock up—they age well, too.” – 92pts, Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate

 

The Alvarinho grapes used in the Soalheiro came from several small vineyards planted in granite soils at altitudes between 100 and 200 meters. Located in a very particular microclimate, the Melgaço region, at the northern point of Portugal, is protected by a range of mountains that create the perfect conditions of rainfall, temperature and number of hours of sunshine needed to perfectly ripen the Alvarinho grapes.
