Very much alive, charming and so well balanced, coming from 30-70 y.o. low-yielding vines. Constant stirring of the lees brings in more flavor complexity which tag teams nicely with Alvarinho’s typical freshness. Lovely and serious response to Rios Baixas from Portugal. Maybe even a 4* considering it’s $22 retail price tag.
