Soalheiro Espumante Bruto Nature 2019

Soalheiro Espumante Bruto Nature é um vinho espumante “fora da caixa”, inspirado no método ancestral de produção de espumantes e com um especial contributo de inovação. Este vinho tem como referência o vinho Soalheiro Nature, o nosso Alvarinho sem a adição de sulfitos. Foram adicionadas Pérolas de Levedura ao vinho base sendo este depois engarrafado com uma rolha especial, permanecendo as Pérolas na garrafa até ao momento de consumo do vinho. As Pérolas, de sabor neutro, proporcionam um gás e uma textura muito delicados. Estas são bem visíveis, principalmente quando se acumulam no último copo, podendo inclusive ser degustadas. Beber o nosso Espumante Bruto Nature é uma experiência única que deve ser vivenciada com entusiasmo e com curiosidade.

The unique drinking experience of our Espumante Bruto Nature makes it a wine for many occasions. It can be enjoyed on its own, at the end of the day, where the intensity and mouthfeel can help you relax. It is also an excellent companion for powerful gastronomy, such as strong cheeses, red meat, feijoada, or barbecued vegetables.

Soalheiro Espumante Bruto Nature has a strong gold colour with fine, elegant bubbles. On the nose it is very complex, with bready aromas and some minerality. In the mouth the flavour is intense, really cleansing the palate. The last glass will contain the Yeast Pearls, which are neutral and safe for consumption. It is a wine for those looking to experience something different.

The Alvarinho for this wine comes from Soalheiro vineyards. Located in the Monção and Melgaço region, which is protected by a mountain range, there is a unique microclimate that influences the characteristics of the grape. The perfect rainfall, temperature, and sunshine conditions result in an expressive ripening of Alvarinho. The soils are granite, and the vineyards are all certified organic, facilitating the production of the base wine without any sulphite addition. The grapes are grown using practices that support biodiversity and the viticultural ecosystem, promoting environmental sustainability.

The base of Soalheiro Espumante Bruto Nature is our Soalheiro Nature, produced from hand harvested Alvarinho grapes. The must ferments in stainless steel without the addition of sulphites. It then undergoes a complete malolactic fermentation for stability. The wine is bottled with special Yeast Pearls, a product of Portuguese research, providing an innovative way to initiate a secondary fermentation in the bottle. As ancestral method of sparkling production has it, this wine is not disgorged after the secondary fermentation, so we use a special cork as a closure. Bruto Nature ages for 18 months at our winery. It is made with zero dosage and the final result is a sparkling wine that will continue ageing until the moment it is opened.
