The 2021 Alvarinho "Granit" is an unoaked Alvarinho. It is dry and comes in at 12.46% alcohol. This has a somewhat more aggressive profile than the friendly (regular) Alvarinho, with the acidity here a little more prominent. That is completely relative, though. This is more along the lines of what I expected from the regular (or "Classico"). There is some tension in the finish, but the good fruit balances it well. This is, in fact, impeccably balanced and very expressive. It just tastes great. The fruit is more interesting than the structure, and there isn't a lot of nuance or complexity. Perhaps that will come. This property has a reputation for long-lived wines, so there is no rush. I'm not sure this will be the longest-lived example in their history, but it should hold at least a decade from the vintage date. There is really no reason to wait. This is drinking well now.
