Soalheiro Alvarinho Clássico
Melgaço, the most northern region of Portugal, is protected by the surrounding mountains that allow a perfect marriage between rainfall, temperature and the number of hours of sunshine needed for the better maturation of the Alvarinho grapes. This climate characteristic during ripening is frequently associated with the microclimate of Monção and Melgaço, where hot days alternate with cold nights, allowing for the maintenance of a fresh and fruity aroma with an acidity that is present but moderate, just the way we like it for the Soalheiro.
Citrus colour, the aroma reveals a classic Alvarinho Soalheiro, intense and tropical with mineral notes. A Classic in the Soalheiro range that shows the aromatic freshness of the Alvarinho variety and an unusual bottle longevity.
Grape variety: 100% Alvarinho.
Vinification: The grapes are harvested manually in boxes of small capacity and carried to the cellar in a short space of time. After the pressing and before fermentation with controlled temperature, the must was decanted during 48 hours at low temperature. The objective of vinification is to obtain an Alvarinho Soalheiro that concentrates the quality of the grapes and that allows a good evolution in the bottle.
Best served with: Ideal as an aperitif or to accompany seafood dishes, fish or poultry dishes.
