Soalheiro Espumante Bruto Alvarinho

This Bruto Nature is made without the addition of sulphites, and is a sparkling wine based on the ancestral method where the yeasts create the very fine and delicate bubbles inside the bottle. The specifically selected cork accompanies the sparkling wine from its creation and fermentation in bottle until the final opening in your glass.

After the first fermentation, the wine is bottled and left to ferment and age for 18 months. The absence of sulphites and dosage along with low and constant temperature for 18 months in the winery, allows this sparkling wine to show all the elegance of the Alvarinho variety in a perspective of greater complexity and less fruit.

The special cork selection subjected to fermentation does not present the usual conicity of the sparkling wine and the yeast pearls are real, neutral flavour and well visible, usually in the last glass, and can also be tasted.

Tasting Notes

The colour and aroma of the Soalheiro Brute Nature are intense and the flavour complex, to be discovered with enthusiasm. Nevertheless, it is a 100% Alvarinho made without addition of sulphites, with complete alcoholic and malolactic fermentation and subject to a second fermentation in bottle.

Grape variety: 100% Alvarinho.

Best served with: Very versatile accompanying a great diversity of dishes. Clearly a sparkling designed for meat or intense gastronomy.
