Soalheiro Alvarinho Branco 2016

2016 - An elegant wine aromatically and persistent flavor. Perfect as the previous harvest. however different. the 2016 harvest is more elegant and more moderate alcohol. the aromas are citrus and tropical. highlighting the taste for the enormous persistence. "It is not customary to have two consecutive perfect crops. 2015 was exceptional in 2016 and follows the same path" say the producers of the first brand of Melgaço Albariño. DAYS AND NIGHTS COLD HOT ALLOW THE FLAVORS OF MAINTENANCE FRESH AND FRUITY WITH A GIFT ACIDITY. BUT MODERATE. Melgaço. the most northern region of Portugal. It is protected by a range of mountains that allow a perfect marriage of rainfall. the temperature and the number of hours of sunshine necessary for better ripening of the grapes of the Alvarinho. The winter precipitation was low and below the average. In January it increased precipitation and was very high with an average air temperature also higher than usual. Globally. the winter was warm. which induced a slightly early bud break with regular surf. Spring was mainly rainy and cold in March. April and May. which induced irregular and delayed growing season. Flowering occurred with delay of about two weeks and decreases fruit set. allowing for better distribution of production in each vine with the consequent increase in quality. From June. precipitation and decreased dramatically increased average temperatures. The months of July and August were hot and very dry. with average high and practically no precipitation temperatures. The September followed the same trend contributing to an early harvest. starting in the first week. showing that the delay in the spring had clearly been recovered. This feature climate during maturation is often associated with the microclimate of Monção and Melgaço. alternating warm days with cool nights. allowing the maintenance of fresh, fruity aromas with a present acidity. but moderate. in the style we set for the Sunny. The grapes. exclusively from the Alvarinho. They are harvested by hand in small bins and transported to the winery in a short time. After pressing. The wort obtained decanted for 48 hours. fermentation follows. temperature controlled. using preselected for the purpose yeasts. The bottling is carried out after stabilization of wine. It is followed by a stage in the bottle. The vinification of Albariño Sunny is directed to obtain a wine that focus the quality of the grapes and allows a good evolution after bottling. citrine yellow. aroma with the profile of Sunny Classic Alvarinho. intense and tropical with mineral notes. Ideal as an aperitif or with seafood. fish dishes or meat dishes of birds.

Soalheiro Alvarinho 2018
I liked this Quinta do Soalheiro with cooked prawns. My partner loves this Vinho Verde.
For the color that a Vinho Verde usually has, I thought it had an intense yellow tone. Smells like banana. It is slightly sweet.

Soalheiro 2015
I drank it accompanied with a snack. A wine to celebrate with friends.
Deep colour at first sight. The aromas of white flowers dominate. It tasted a lot like wine.
