In the northernmost point of Portugal lies Melgaço, the home of the Quinta de Soalheiro. This Portuguese company has been crafting beautiful Alvarinho wines in the Minho region since the first releasing its own branded wine in 1982. The first vine was planted in 1974, a product of the passion which João António Cerdeira felt for this land and for its winemaking capabilities.

Soalheiro Alvarinho Branco 2018 is made with 100% Alvarinho grapes grown in the Melgaço region, where the nearby mountain ranges protect the vines and provide a microclimate that is perfect for the creation of high-quality grapes. Hot days, cold nights, rainfall, and sunshine lead to a fruity, mildly acidic grape which brings all of those qualities to the final wine. The grapes are handpicked and brought into the cellar quickly to be pressed at a controlled temperature. This ensures that the full aroma and flavour of the grapes makes it into the bottle.

This bright, citrus-coloured wine is a classic Alvarinho. It is both intense and elegant on the palate, full of aromas and dry enough to accompany any savoury dish, especially seafood, fish, or poultry. It is also perfect to enjoy with appetizers or on its own, chilled. This tropically-tinged white wine will please the palate with its perfect balance.
