2019 Quinta de Soalheiro Vinho Verde Alvarinho Reserva
The Alvarinho Reserva Vinho Verde comes from old vines. The wine spent 11 months in 35% new French oak. Only the finest and most concentrated grapes are used for this top wine, which benefit from an education with batônnage (stirring the groin) in oak barrels. The wine is nice and tight and dry (less than two grams of sugar and 5.5 grams of total acidity). The wooden upbringing makes this Alvarinho (Albarino) even more handsome than it already is by nature. The wine is now beautifully balanced in its youth and gets better with age. The Alvarinho Reserva has a beautiful complex nose with ripe fruit notes, minerals, field flowers and something of brioche. The wine has an impressive structure and intensity, with ripe and generous fruit, minerals, good juice, a light toast and brilliant acidity in the aftertaste.
