"... and the wines were a revelation, especially a peachy 2008 Soalheiro Alvarinho from the Minho, which knocked spots of any Albarino I have tried in the last few
years." Bill Knott, Financial Times "How to Spend It" Magazine, November 2011
Current Vintage: 2010
The oldest Alvarinho vines at Soalheiro, just 10% barrel fermented, go to make one of Portugalâ€™s very best white wines, and certainly one of the most wonderful expressions of this variety. If you thought that Alvarinho was foremost about primary fruit character, this comes as a bit of a shock. Seriously structured, with mineral notes quite equal to the pure stone fruit elements, this is brilliant stuff!
The 2010 was named by Julia Harding as one of her Top 50 wines in Portugal. The third time it garnered this accolade.
