Aveleda Solos de Granito is produced with the best Alvarinho bunches from Aveleda grown in granite soils. The harvest is manual with cluster selection. The grapes are cooled until arriving at the vinification center where they undergo soft pressing at low pressures. Alcoholic fermentation and aging happen in stainless steel vats, where the wine ages for 9 months with bâttonage. The wine rests in bottle for another 9 months in bottle before being released.

Tasting Notes

Bright pale yellow hue, Aveleda Solos de Granito has an exuberant aromatic profile where citrus fruits, green apples and mineral notes are abundant. The mouth has a strong mineral attack, followed by a crisp acidity and aromas of ripe grapefruit and green peaches. With a vigorous structure, this alvarinho varietal is concentrated, direct and straight to the point. Incredibly long finish.
