Soalheiro Alvarinho 2018

Intensely Elegant

Soalheiro‚Äôs Alvar¬≠in¬≠ho is a clas¬≠sic pro¬≠duc¬≠tion of the win¬≠ery with unusu¬≠al¬≠ly long bot¬≠tle longevi¬≠ty, its grapes ben¬≠e¬≠fit¬≠ting from the per¬≠fect mar¬≠riage of rain¬≠fall and sunshine.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

From the beau¬≠ti¬≠ful Mel¬≠ga√ßo region of north¬≠ern Por¬≠tu¬≠gal, where hot days alter¬≠nate with cold nights, Soalheiro‚Äôs Alvar¬≠in¬≠ho has a beau¬≠ti¬≠ful cit¬≠rus col¬≠or with fresh, fruity aro¬≠mas and a mod¬≠er¬≠ate acid¬≠i¬≠ty. On the dry side, this wine is intense¬≠ly trop¬≠i¬≠cal, with min¬≠er¬≠al notes beneath it. The grapes are man¬≠u¬≠al¬≠ly har¬≠vest¬≠ed in small batch¬≠es, all to con¬≠cen¬≠trate the qual¬≠i¬≠ty of the grapes and allow good evo¬≠lu¬≠tion in the bottle. 

PAIR­INGS

This Alvar¬≠in¬≠ho makes a won¬≠der¬≠ful ap√©ri¬≠tif and is absolute¬≠ly amaz¬≠ing with the fruits of the sea. From ceviche to fresh oys¬≠ters, mus¬≠sels, and clams, and even seafood risot¬≠to, its acid¬≠i¬≠ty and bright¬≠ness goes well with their fla¬≠vors. It goes well, in par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar, with white fish, so you‚Äôll cer¬≠tain¬≠ly want to try a glass with a love¬≠ly fish taco. 

A SPE­CIAL MICROCLIMATE

Soal¬≠heiro gets its Alvar¬≠in¬≠ho grapes from sev¬≠er¬≠al small vine¬≠yards in the Mel¬≠ga√ßo region. The brand name itself means ‚Äč‚Äúa sun¬≠ny place‚ÄĚ, aris¬≠ing from the excel¬≠lent expo¬≠sure of the vine¬≠yards in that area. They are a pio¬≠neer in not just the use, but the cre¬≠ation of the Alvar¬≠in¬≠ho wine, becom¬≠ing an inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al bench¬≠mark for wines from this grape vari¬≠ety. They have been in busi¬≠ness since 1974.

Storage Instructions

Store your unopened bot¬≠tle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from con¬≠stant vibra¬≠tion. Keep your bot¬≠tle hor¬≠i¬≠zon¬≠tal in a wine rack or cel¬≠lar to retain the moist¬≠ness of the cork. The ide¬≠al tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for stor¬≠age is between 7 to 15¬įC. Once opened, a bot¬≠tle will be good for 3 to 5 days stand¬≠ing upright in the refrigerator.
