Soalheiro Alvarinho 2017 Vinho Verde


Having started at the end of August, the harvest of this vintage was the earliest ever carried out by Soalheiro, 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 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. Citrus colour, aroma revels a classic Alvarinho Soalheiro, intense and tropical with mineral notes.
