‘The 2021 Alvarinho Contacto comes in at 12.6% alcohol, 6.7 grams of total acidity and less than 1.5 grams of residual sugar. Unlike the Muros Antigos Alvarinho (repeating past advice), this is 100% from Quinta da Torre (located in Monção) and made with a short skin maceration (hence the name Contacto). This is textured, in the way Contacto often is, and very bright, the acidity easily winning out over what seems to be the modest fruit. 2022-2029’ – Mark Squires, Wine Advocate, 89/100

‘Delicate nose with floral and mineral hints. Full bodied mouth with floral notes. Lime, salty and wet stone. Long finish.’ – Winemaker
