Review:
“The 2019 Alvarinho Muros Antigos comes in at 12.5% alcohol, 6.8 grams of total acidity and 1.7 grams of residual sugar. Sourced mostly from Melgaço, higher altitudes and sandy soils, this is a somewhat nervier version of the 2018… It is impressive, though, how this grips the palate. The long and juicy finish is exceptional for the level. Ultimately, I liked this a lot, even though it is not particularly fleshy. It shows the ability to develop and hold as well… the laser-like focus and crispness will make it a warm-weather star.” Mark Squires
