Soalheiro Granite reveals a more mineral profile of Alvarinho. It is an Alvarinho that comes from a specific selection of vineyards planted at more than 300 meters above sea level, revealing the minerality that connects the soil of granitic origin of the "Monção and Melgaço" terroir and the Alvarinho.The grapes for this Soalheiro cuvée come from higher plots, the grapes ripen significantly slower and we can produce wines with a very nice acidity that also have a very mineral taste.2018 will be the fourth year of this alternative Soalheiro cuvée. The first releases have been a huge success and have been offered to the best tables in our country.
In the region of Monção and Melgaço, hot days alternate with cold nights, which allows to keep fresh and fruity aromas with a present but moderate acidity, as we like it for the Alvarinho.
