      Tasting Notes and Description
      ALLO has a yellow and silvery-bright colour. In this blend, Alvarinho, full of tropical fruit and structure, contrasts with Loureiro, floral and delicate, resulting in a lively yet elegant white wine. The moderately low alcohol content contributes to the wine’s balance.

      Perfect as a ‘wine by the glass’ or as an aperitif, ideal for a sunny day. It also pairs well with seafood, grilled fish, white meats, matured cheeses, smoked meats, or Asian and Mediterranean gastronomies.

      The name ALLO comes from the first two letters of Alvarinho and Loureiro.

      The Melgaço region, the most northerly point of Portugal, is protected by a range of mountains that create the perfect conditions of rainfall, temperature and sunshine needed to perfectly ripen the Alvarinho grapes. The grapes for this wine, Alvarinho and Loureiro, two noble grape varieties of Minho in northern Portugal, are harvested by hand into small boxes.

      "The 2020 ALLO (the "AL" being 30% Alvarinho, the "LO" referencing 70% Loureiro) is dry with 3.5 grams of residual sugar and 7.2 of total acidity. It comes in at 11.6% alcohol. Fresh and lively, this is smooth and then silky in texture, adding that fresh feel and flavor on the finish. It's not tightly wound or intense, but it should be a refreshing summer sipper. Nicely priced, this blend can age a bit, but there is no reason to wait. It likely will be at its best in its first few years, no matter how long it theoretically ages. Drink 2021 - 2028."
