Soalheiro Vinho Verde

Alvarinho, 2019


Vinho Verde 75cl

This is a truly amazing Vinho Verde, made from the premium Alvarinho variety. This was apparently the first Vinho Verde to be made in Melgaco, Northern Portugal.
Very different to the normal light spritzy styles, this has some weight to it.
Zesty on the nose, white peach and citrus, grape too with some saline notes.
Incredibly tangy and fresh on the palate, with a touch of just bottled spritz, ripe red apple, lime, stone fruits and citrus, it's bursting with really clean fresh fruit, with good acidity and a long finish. It's seriously delicious being both crisp and refreshing but also quite complex and moreish. This new 2019 is a touch crisper and more linear than the 2018 and I like it even more because of this.
