“The 2022 ALLO (the "AL" being 30% Alvarinho, the "LO" referencing 70% Loureiro) is dry and comes in at 11.6% alcohol. A touch tart, this has a little mouth-pucker on the finish in its youth.

“The 2022 ALLO (the "AL" being 30% Alvarinho, the "LO" referencing 70% Loureiro) is dry and comes in at 11.6% alcohol. A touch tart, this has a little mouth-pucker on the finish in its youth. It is plainly a blend aiming for acidity more than concentration. There's a fair bit of power and that fresh feel that so many love about Vinho Verde (at Soalheiro, to be clear, there is no fizz). What this lacks just now is better integration of its parts and some expressiveness. It doesn't truly do justice to either of its components, but I suspect a month or two more of bottle aging will help that along. It should hold reasonably well, not that most will want to hold it past next summer.”~M.S.
About Quinta Do Soalheiro
Soalheiro, a pioneer in the creation of Alvarinho wine in Melgaço, is an international benchmark for the wines of this grape variety, blending perfectly into the distinctive Minho landscape surrounding it. In the nineteen seventies (1974), a passion for winemaking led João António Cerdeira, with the support of his father, António Esteves Ferreira, to plant the first Alvarinho vine and to create the first brand of Alvarinho in Melgaço in 1982, and one of the first Alvarinho brands in the sub-region of Monção and Melgaço.

Located in Melgaço (Portugal's northernmost point) it is protected by a range of mountains that create the conditions necessary for the best ripening of Alvarinho grapes. Here, the Alvarinho is special. The land is protected by a set of mountains that create the rain, temperature and hours of sunshine conditions necessary for the best ripening of the grapes. We hope that you also enjoy its vibrant and elegant expression, something that makes us passionate..
