'Quinta de Soalheiro Alvarinho Vinho Verde 2016 is a heaven-scent glass of blossom and stone fruit' - David Williams, The Observer, April 2018

'Lovely rich, opulent style, with red apple skin and pear aromas. Nice weight on the palate - quite rich and layered - with perfect balance between rich fruit, brisk acidity and the balancing sweetness, allied to concentration and floral notes.' - Decanter 2016

Recently reintroduced to this wine at a tasting and is just as good as I remember with wonderful purity and ripeness of citrus fruits and stone fruits with a saline minerality adding freshness. - Katy Barker, OWC
