2018 Soalheiro Alvarinho Vinho Verde

SKU #1425074 29-92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This is a fragrant alvarinho with scents of spiced pear and chamomile. Its pale and juicy flavors of nectarine and salted grapefruit are tight and clean, suited to several years of development in the bottle, or to decanting now with crab. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Herbal and fragrant with light floral and citrus notes. Very aromatic. Quite lean, sour citrus, very pure. Long, crisp and nicely sour/fresh finish. 16.5/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Alvarinho, the so-called unoaked "classico," is dry (three grams of residual sugar as against 6.1 grams of total acidity) and comes in at 12.5% alcohol. A little understated this year, this shows ripe fruit, flavor and a surprisingly long finish as it airs out. That said, it seems to be a bit more in the middle of the road this year. We'll see how this progresses—they often develop well. There were about 100,000 bottles sourced from 25-year-old vines. (MS) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

K&L Notes

Delicious as usual, this mouthwatering Vinho Verde is 100% Alvarinho based. A combination of ripe golden stone fruits and fruit cocktail aromas lead to a rich, yellow and gold-fruited palate. Rich and with real flavor authority, the wine still shows loads of freshness and a nicely dry finish, perhaps a bit more so than the ebullient nose might suggest. The grapes are organically grown in the Vinho Verde sub-region of Melgaço and Monçao on granite soils. This expressive, more serious style of Vinho Verde is delicious as an aperitif or accompanied by your favorite grilled fishes and shellfish.
