2022 Soalheiro Primeiras Vinhas


The microclimate that influences the production of Alvarinho grapes in the Monção and Melgaço regions of Vinho Verde, Portugal's northernmost territory, is protected by a set of mountains. They allow a perfect combination between rainfall, temperature, and the number of sunshine hours necessary for the best maturation of the Alvarinho grapes of the Alvarinho grape variety.

This good sun exposure - a 'soalheiro' (sunny) location - is where the winery's name came from; the vineyard was also their first, hence the name 'Primeiras Vinhas'.

Tasting Note: Primeiras Vinhas has a bright lemon to golden-yellow colour and a concentrated ripe fruit aroma with buttery notes and plenty of spice. It boasts an elegant, vibrant flavour that is very firm and tropical tasting in its youth and gets bigger with ageing. Its full body perfectly balances with a crisp acidity. These complexities are due to the early ripening of the Alvarinho on the suntrap, nicknamed ‘Soalheiro’, where our first vineyard is located.

Origin: Vinho Verde, Portugal

Blend: Alvarinho
