I love Soalheiro. They’re one of the top producers in Portugal’s Vinho Verde region, and it’s time I gave Portugal a bit more love on this blog – it was one of the key countries for getting me loved up about wine. I visited them a few years ago (report here), and this 2013 is lovely and bright. It’s a brilliant value in Portugal, where you can get it for 10 Euros.
Soalheiro Alvarinho 2013 Vinho Verde, Portugal
12.5% alcohol. Lively, fruity and floral with notes of grapefruit, melon and pear. Bright and fresh with a pure, zippy palate showing lovely pear and grapefruit. Delicate and fruit driven, and so attractive. 90/100 (UK agent Raymond Reynolds)

“…and it’s time I gave Portugal a bit more love on this blog…” : I couldn’t agree more!!
I think you give the country enough love already!!! have always thought of you as the countries biggest supporter !!!
I agree with both critics given above from Paul and Keith, it was a big support of the country and still is but i can see that jamie is a little distant from potuguese wines lattely….coming back just for the port wine…so many regions in Portugal deserve attention!!!One that is pushing me is Dão wines and a little bit above Beira Interior!!!
