View all characteristics Discover more about this wine

The Alvarinho is raised on stainless steel on its own lees. The wine is beautifully dry, expressive and fresh. Try it yourself, the wine has different personalities. It is fresh and dry at the start, but after a while the wine becomes powerful and concentrated. This is unique for a wine in this price range. The specialists at Parker are also undecided and really do not know which drinking window they should adhere to (until 2030+), but we keep it in the middle. This Portuguese wine has a wonderful fresh scent of minerals, citrus fruits and something of tropical fruit. Intense and aromatic taste, excellent balance, fatty structure, ripe fruit notes, minerals, fine acidity, lots of length and beautifully pure. A good price and quality go hand-in-hand.

Vineyard for 2023 Quinta de Soalheiro Alvarinho Vinho Verde

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.
