Awards and/or Press Quotes
Robert Parker 90 Points. ‘The 2015 Muros Antigos Escolha is an equal blend of Loureiro and Avesso, with 20% Alvarinho. It comes in dry and at 12.5% alcohol. A wonderful performance and value this year (I know--I'm beginning to sound like a broken record), this shows good concentration, expressive fruit and fine tension on the finish. One of the best Escolha blends in this brand that I've seen, this is another no-brainer purchase this year.’
