Citrus colour, elegant and full flavour that grows in the glass with time, becoming increasingly persistent. The flavour is full bodied, fresh and complex with great final complexity.
The grapes are produced with the concept of organic viticulture and harvest by hand from the old vines with more than 40 years at Quinta de Soalheiro, the First Vines “Primeiras Vinhas”. Currently in the blend also include a selection of Alvarinho grapes planted in Pe´-franco.
The microclimate that influences the production of Alvarinho grapes is very particular. Melgac¸o region, the northern point of Portugal, is protected by a range of mountains that create the perfect conditions of rainfall, temperature and number of hours of sunshine needed to the better ripeness of the Alvarinho grapes. The brand name – Soalheiro - arises from the excellent sun exposure of the vineyards bearing the same name - a sunny place.
