'From the heartland of Alvarinho, the wine has a rich, ripe character. White fruits balanced by crisp acidity have a spicy touch and as well as some weight and density. The wine, like many great Alvarinhos, needs a few months and so will be best from 2021.' – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 92/100

'The 2019 Alvarinho Muros Antigos comes in at 12.5% alcohol, 6.8 grams of total acidity and 1.7 grams of residual sugar. Sourced mostly from Melgaço, higher altitudes and sandy soils, this is a somewhat nervier version of the 2018. There is plenty of power, but the fruit is not quite as expressive. The mid-palate is average in concentration. It is impressive, though, how this grips the palate. The long and juicy finish is exceptional for the level. Ultimately, I liked this a lot, even though it is not particularly fleshy. It shows the ability to develop and hold as well. It may never be the sexiest Alvarinho, but the laser-like focus and crispness will make it a warm-weather star. Drink 2020 - 2029.' – Mark Squires, Wine Advocate, 90/100
