Soalheiro Granit 2016 Vinho Verde


The year 2015 was a perfect and consistent vintage for green wine, the summer months and specifically August had moderate temperatures and cool nights that favoured slow maturation and the concentration of the varietal aromas on the grapes. The beginning of September contributed to a perfect balance in the Alvarinho. In 2015, flowering occurred two weeks later than last harvest, because of the little precipitation in winter. The grapes harvest for this Granit are the last ones in September, because of the higher altitude vines selection. The grapes are harvested manually in boxes of small capacity and carried to the cellar in a short space of time. After the pressing and the before fermentation with controlled temperature, the must was decanted during 48 hours. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel thanks with higher temperature than usual for white wines. The bottling is made after a period of batonage and aging in fine lees. Citrus colour, aroma reveals a elegant profile with more mineral notes, dry and persistent flavour. Soalheiro Granit reveals the most mineral profile of the Alvarinho grapes.
