Description:

Following the success with our first Alvarinho sparkling wine, we were curious to see what Alvarinho expressions would be like after barrel fermentation. Soalheiro Espumante Bruto Barrica is a sparkling wine with a distinct character provided by its aging in barrels. Primary fermentation takes place in oak and the base wine remains in barrels for 12 months, giving it a great complexity of flavor and a creamy, long-lasting texture. After secondary fermentation in the bottle and after 36 months of aging, this wine shows all the elegance and complexity of Alvarinho, with special emphasis on its less fruity characteristics. It is a wine that follows the production model of our favorite French sparkling wines, but with a special touch of Monção and Melgaço.

Espumante Bruto Barrica is a unique sparkling wine that can accompany a variety of foods. Its complex flavor goes very well with red meat, goat and lamb, cured cheeses or other intense dishes. It pairs beautifully with lighter foods such as boiled seafood or grilled vegetables.

This wine has an intense yellow color and presents fine, persistent bubbles. On the nose it essentially reveals vanilla tertiary aromas resulting from aging in barrels. In the mouth, it presents a good balance between acidity and alcohol and reveals a creamy texture. The flavors are complex, very elegant and persistent.
