2016 Soalheiro "Allo" Vinho Verde

SKU #1314203 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2016 ALLO is a 70/30 blend of Alvarinho and Loureiro, unoaked and coming in at 11% alcohol. (The name, of course, comes from the AL of Alvarinho and the LO of Loureiro.) This is a fine new brand from Soalheiro. Showing superb concentration, plenty of acidity and that hit of 'Soalheiro green,' as I like to call it, this is beautiful, lingering, tightly wound and very invigorating. Indeed, it is simply intense in its youth, yet it is also perfectly balanced. I'm willing to bet that it will age rather well, too, but let's be a bit conservative there, even considering Soalheiro's reputation in that regard. There is no rush, but this will be a perfect wine to wake you up this summer. Sourced from 20-year-old vines, there were 50,000 bottles produced. (MS)  (4/2017)

 The blend of Vinho Verde's two top grapes brings out great swathes of crisp acidity as well as vibrant citrus flavors. The wine is delicious while also tense with minerality. That will soften over the next few months, so drink the wine starting from late 2017. *Best Buy* (RV)  (8/2017)

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.
