Soalheiro Alvarinho, 2018
Style/ Colour White
Region Minho, Monçao & Melgaço (Vinho Verde)
Grape Varieties 100% Alvarinho
Winemaking Often quoted as the standard bearer for this variety in Portugal, Luis Cerdeira is the surest pair of hands south of the Minho with Alvarinho. The grapes are harvested manually in boxes of small capacity and carried to the cellar in a short space of time. After pressing and before temperature controlled fermentation, the musts are decanted for 48 hours at low temperature.
Tasting notes Soalheiro’s Alvarinho is bursting with vibrant, sun-drenched tropical fruit and fresh minerality. The granitic soils of the region, provide acidic freshness and texture. Elegant and seductive.
Food Pairing Perfectly suited to a sunny afternoon, this elegant wine is superb as an aperitif before dining or paired with salads. Particularly good with seafood, or sipped alongside lighter poultry dishes.
Serving recommendations Serve cold at a temperature of 7-9ºC.
