Soalheiro Alvarinho 2019
The Soalheiro vineyards were established in 1974, not far from Melgaço (in Alvaredo in fact), Portugal's most northerly town, and overlooking the Minho River. Since then, this very special terroir has allowed Soalheiro to forge its reputation as the very finest producer of this variety in Portugal.
Aroma's reveals a classic Alvarinho Soalheiro, intense, super clean - citrus, and tropical with mineral notes.
Luis Pato Vinhas Velhas, Branco 2019
Luis Pato is widely regarded as the person who put the wines of Bairrada on the world map. He started making wines in 1980, ten years after his father started bottling the first Bairrada wines, once the region was legally recognised.
This particular white is the Luis Pato Vinhas Velhas Branco, his old vines white wine. It's a really interesting blend - Bical, Cercial and Cercialinho. It's honeyed and feels rich, but it also has great balancing freshness and isn't heavy at all, no oak ageing here.
Terra d'Alter, Natural Zero SO2 Aragonez, 2018
Peter Bright is the original ‘flying winemaker’, a dynamic and enterprising Australian who has lived in Portugal since 1982, his motto is “experiment, but don’t mix styles”.
The Terra d’Alter vineyards are structured according to the new world approach - the vines are planted using modern training and irrigation techniques, facilitating treatment and ensuring quality.
This 100 % Aragonez (Tempranillo) is totally sulphite free but is interesting despite that - deep red fruits and spicy vanilla. Soft and rich tannins with a long spicy salty finish
