Often quoted as the standard bearer for this variety in Portugal, Luis Cerdeira is the surest pair of hands south of the Minho with Alvarinho. Soalheiro Alvarinho ‘classico’ is, vintage after vintage, consistently bursting with vibrant, sun-drenched fruit and fresh minerality. A cracking bottle, revealing a delightful combination of yellow apples, ripe lemon and tangerine, with a herbal, mineral lift. There’s an oily richness on the finish balanced with a crisp minerality. Not your standard Vinho Verde, these wines can live for years. Pair with summer salads, peppers stuffed with mozzarella or a classic seafood paella!
