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. ... More details

Winery
Yellow colour, citrus flavour with an elegant and mineral profile. The Alvarinho, full of tropical fruit and structure, contrasts with the Loureiro, floral and full of elegance, which gives this white wine with 11%vol. a unique balance. ALLO is a vibrant and precise white wine with a peculiar balance due to the moderately low alcohol content. Alvarinho grape gives structure and Loureiro grape the elegant and mineral aromatic distinction.

Region: Douro

The Douro valley in Portugal has long been one of Europe's most important and unique wine regions, with a history which stretches back over two thousand years to when Pheonician tradesmen and settlers first began planting grapevines in the rich and fertile soil found there. The region itself is something of an ideal location for viticulture, with mineral rich soils and plenty of moisture from the river, alongside long, baking hot summers which help the grapes reach full ripeness. Wineries in the Douro utilize a wide range of grape varietals for their distinctive and characterful wines, including red varietals such as Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Cao, and delightful white varietals such as Gouveio and the increasingly popular Viosinho. However, it is for the fortified wines of Porto which Douro is most famous for, and these are widely considered to be amongst the finest fortified wines in the world.

Country: Portugal

Benefiting from both the hot, dry Iberian climate as well as brisk Atlantic winds, Portugal is a perfectly situated country for vineyard cultivation and wine production. With a wine making history which stretches back thousands of years, it comes as little surprise that wine plays an important role in the cultural identity and practices of the country. The Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, the Greeks and the Romans all had a hand in forming Portugal as an important center for wine production, and over the millennia, this resulted in each region of this beautiful part of Europe producing its own distinctive wines easily identifiable and separate from neighboring Spain's. Today, the varied terroir and climate across Portugal allows a great range of wines to be made each year, from the fresh and dry Vinho Verde wines to the famous and widely drunk fortified Port wines, and many in between.
