Soalheiro Terramatter, 2018
Style/ Colour White
Region Minho, Monçao & Melgaço (Vinho Verde)
Grape Varieties 100% organic Alvarinho
Winemaking The micro climate of Melgaço ensures that the vines receive perfect amounts of rainfall and sunshine, and are protected by a mountain range, the ideal conditions for Alvarinho to ripen.This wine is made naturally, all handpicked with the aim of promoting biodiversity and sustainability in the vineyards. It is harvested early, which concentrates the fresh, mineral acidity and undergoes partial malolactic fermentation in traditional chestnut barrels from the Minho region. It is also unfiltered.
Tasting notes The colour is intense and golden. Its full of flavour with apricot and ripe peach and vibrant, fresh and grassy vegetal end notes. Creamy and smooth on the palate, this medium bodied wine offers a long finish with gentle balancing acidity.
Food Pairing Ideal as an aperitif or to accompany seafood dishes, fish or poultry dishes. Pairs very well with Clams "à Bulhão Pato".
Serving recommendations Serve cold at a temperature of 7-9ºC.
