'Honeysuckle, juicy pear, nectarine and lime on the nose and palate. Dry and zesty in the mouth with decent citrus length.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 92/100 (Silver)

'The 2020 Muros Antigos Escolha is a blend of 40% Loureiro, 40% Avesso and 20% Alvarinho, unoaked and coming in at 12% alcohol, plus 1.5 grams of residual sugar and 6.2 grams of total acidity. Solid in the mid-palate and reasonably fresh, this is a Vinho Verde that goes for something more than just zest on the finish. There's ample acidity, but this also excels with concentration, perfect balance and rich texture. It's lovely overall and a bargain. It has a chance of holding pretty well if you choose to do so, but there is no reason to wait. It might be at its best on the younger side, that is, its first few years. Drink 2021-2029.' – Mark Squires, Wine Advocate, 89/100
