  1. Hi
    Interesting tasting. Good to see the Reserva develope in so a lovely manner. How long do you think this reserva will develope in the bottle?
    I work for the Danish importer of Soalheiro and we have only had the wines since vintage 2011 in Reserva.

  2. Hi and thank you for your comments. I haven't tasted any at older age than four years, and it could still age further at that stage. Like regular Alvarinho it starts to loose it's initial freshness and gets fruitier and more tropical. The regular Alvarinho from Soalheira can last fifteen years or more, I guess this will last as long. It depends on your preference.
