The grapes for this Terramatter come from the first organic vineyards of Soalheiro. The intention is to eventually convert the entire estate. However, the difference between Terramatter and the classic Soalheiro comes mainly from the difference in vinification and the time of harvest. 

Elaborated by one of the best winemakers of the region Luis Cedeira, Soalheiro ( a sunny place) is a family estate established in the region since 1974 and the 4th generation. It works in organic agriculture on a granite soil. This wine is made from a selection of parcels of old vines planted between 150 and 250 m of altitude. The wine is aged on lees with malolactic fermentation to give more richness to the wine. 

This wine is full of flavor, smooth and complex with a fresh and vibrant vegetal taste at the end, mainly due to the early harvest and partial malolactic in chestnut barrels . It is a Soalheiro that can be interpreted both as a return to the origins and as a vision of the future. Ideal as an aperitif or to be served with seafood, fish or poultry dishes.
