Soalheiro Alvarinho Dócil 2015 Vinho Verde


Having started at the end of August, the harvest of this vintage was the earliest ever carried out by Sunny, but it has shown an excellent balance between the fruitiness and acidity of the Alvarinho variety, grown in the unique terroir of Monção and Melgaço. The rainfall in the summer months, especially in July and August, was very low, and daytime temperatures were moderate to high. However, it was the characteristic cold nights of this terroir that favoured the slow ripening, and the preservation of the aromas. At the end of August, the ideal point of ripening was reached. With a dry start to September, at moderate temperatures, the end of the harvest proved to be extraordinary. The Alvarinho grapes (with freshness and without over maturation) were harvested in boxes of small capacity and transported to the cellar in a short time. The must obtained by pressing whole grapes was decanted and fermented at low temperature. Fermentation took place in stainless steel to achieve a precise balance of sweetness and acidity that defines the final alcohol of this Soalheiro. Citrus colour, aroma with citrus and tropical aromas with an unusual balance between the acidity, the sweetness and the low 9% alcohol concentration.
