In a nutshell:
An, organic, unfiltered, complex Vinho Verde which is very much a cut above.
Quinta de Soalheiro are regarded as among the finest Portuguese producers of Alvarinho (aka Albarino in Spain). This wine, their 'Terramatter' cuvée, is grown biodynamically in a way to support the biodiversity of the vineyard, goes through a partial malolactic fermentation in traditional chestnut barrels and is then bottled unfiltered. Intense in colour in the glass, expressive aromas and a rich and complex mouthfell with ripe citrus and stone fruit flavours, hints of vibrant vegetal notes, and backed up by a classic fresh minerality.
When to drink:
A unique,ageworthy, Alvarinho Vinho Verde which can match an array of seafood and poultry dishes.
