Wine News & Reviews

2015 Reguengo de Melgaco Alvarinho Vinho Verde - 93 PTS - W&S

wine and spirits logo 250"This vineyard surrounds a 16th-century manor house, restored as a small hotel at the turn of the 21st century. The 18.5 acres of vines, alvarinho in light granite soils, were planted in 1997. They produced a sexy 2015, as brisk as a young Chablis (reductive in the best sense), with the languid rhythm of the waves on a summer beach, cresting to stone and lemon, then broadening out to Mandarin orange zest, the undulating wave repeated with each sip, then echoed in each breath, as it would be echoed by the meatiness of grilled octopus."

2016 Reguengo de Melgaco Alvarinho Vinho Verde - 93 PTS - W&S

wine and spirits logo 250"This starts off as varietally correct alvarinho—a selection from vines averaging 20 years old, grown on gravelly granitic sands. It keeps getting better over the course of a day, its pale pink grapefruit and buttery peach flavors turning racy, then gracious, an earthy Atlantic wine that’s not particularly powerful, but has flavor depth."

2017 Reguengo de Melgaco Alvarinho Vinho Verde - ***** - Captain Cork

captain cook logo"First, enormously dense Riesling nose, as if that were a Mosel wine. Gorgeous! I smell yellow apple and lime. Then Pears and Bananas are added and it becomes clear: this is not a Moselaner. I take a sip and am being amazed. What a balanced, full-bodied, extracted and rich wine. I taste Banana, again Yellow Apple, the flesh of the Dragon-fruit, fresh green herbs and cool minerality. In the finish again a lot of freshness and the delicate bitterness of the dried Lemon peel. Noble and full of Alvarinho character - That's it !"

- Captain Cork, Alles Über Wein (October 2018), ***** (5 Stars)
