Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2022 Foral de Melgaço Old Vines (40+ years) is an Alvarinho that comes in dry, without fizz and at 12.9% alcohol. Aromatic and expressive in its youth, this is super today, well balanced, tasty and adequate at least in mid-palate depth. I always wonder how well these will age and develop, which they should do to justify some of my typical enthusiasm for the brand—in Vinho Verde, you don't get to claim to be great any more if your wines fall apart in two years—but this seems capable of aging well throughout the decade, maybe more. It is certainly lovely today, and when tasted again the next day, it retained all its fruit while showing more of its structure. It is downright irresistible with the potential to improve. Let's lean up for the moment."
