2022 Quinta de Soalheiro ALLO
A homage by winemaker Luis to the well-known TV series, the Allo is a lively and precise white wine, based on alvarinho and loureiro. The first grape brings structure, the second provides aromatic notes. In the nose fine aromas of tropical fruit and citrus. The alvarinho offers aromatic fruit intensity and structure, the loureiro, on the contrary, elegance and minerality. The wine is beautifully balanced. Thanks to a slightly lower alcohol percentage (11.5%), this Allo is 'easily digestible'! Delicious with tapas with fish and shellfish.
Quinta de Soalheiro is located in the northernmost point of Portugal, in the sub-region of the Vinho Verde area, called Monção e Melgaço. Protected by a mountain range in the north, the vineyards are ideally located for growing the Alvarinho grape, with just enough of everything: sun, heat and rainfall. It was these unique circumstances that led João Antonio Cerdeira to plant his first alvarinho vineyard here in 1974. João has since been succeeded by his children Luis and Maria, who have further developed and perfected the company. Everything is done here with a great sense of detail. The vineyards are cultivated organically and the winemaking process has only one purpose: to make pure and harmonious wines. Soalheiro has a great reputation both in Portugal itself and abroad.
