Soalheiro Terramatter 2022
Soalheiro Terramatter has an elegant and expressive profile. The climatic conditions of the region and the winemaking techiniques used allow a very intense and mineral aroma with a fresh and intense flavour.
An entirely different Soalheiro. Made with organically grown grapes of Alvarinho, not subject to filtration, the color of the wine is intense, the aroma full and has a complex flavor with a vibrant vegetal element at the end, mainly due to early harvest and partial malolactic in barrels of chestnut.
The Soalheiro vineyards were established in 1974, not far from Megaco (in Alvaredo in fact), Portugal’s most northerly town, and overlooking the Minho River. Since then, this very special terroir has allowed Soalheiro to forge its reputation as one of the top estates in Portugal.
Luis Cerdeira, whose grandfather established the estate, now makes these benchmark wines regarded by many as the epitome of the Alvarinho variety in Portugal . Vineyards are between 100m and 200m, planted on granite, above the Minho. Cultivation is organic, though not registered.
