Quinta Do Feital Alvarinho Superior Minho Dorado 2010
In the late 1990s, Spanish winemaker Marcial Dorado had a goal to make the finest Albariño in Galicia, Spain. Unable to find an old vineyard to work with, he was able to find several old-vine vineyards immediately across the Minho River in Portugal, which he subsequently purchased. Dorado comes from several parcels of 30 to 70-year-old Alvarinho near Melgaço. This wine has the compelling floral aromatics of the best Rías Baixas Albariños but offers even more authority.
