2017 Soalheiro "Allo" Vinho Verde

SKU #1401948 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 ALLO (from the AL of Alvarinho and the LO of Loureiro) marked a departure last year for Soalheiro, generally considered to be an Alvarinho specialist (not that they were wholly uninvolved with Loureiro). It is a 70/30 blend of Alvarinho and Loureiro coming in at a relatively modest 11% alcohol (more like a Loureiro than an Alvarinho). Opening with plenty of zip, zing and zest, not to mention a bit of mouth pucker, this is in a livelier style than the pure Alvarinhos. The Loureiro, despite its modest percentage here, refuses to be ignored, providing both aromatics and flavor. This is another punch-above-your-weight wine from Vinho Verde in general and Soalheiro in particular. (MS)  (6/2018)

- 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.
