Soalheiro Granit Alvarinho 2022

Size: 750ml

Wine Advocate: 91

"Granit has a bright, lemon-yellow colour, exhibiting elegant aromas with more mineral notes. The taste is crisp, dry, and persistent, with more earthy and stony flavours. There is a sensation of saltiness on the palate, reflecting the impact of the granite soils on Alvarinho." —winemaker

"The 2022 Alvarinho "Granit" is an unoaked Alvarinho. It is dry and comes in at 12.9% alcohol. Unfortunately, due to shipping problems, I was not able to taste all of the winery's submissions for this report together, but they were still tasted within a couple of weeks of each other. This seems like the best of the group. Opening well on the fruit-forward side, this was pretty delicious on first pour, but it also shows some structure to go with that nice fruit. It is not the nerviest Granit ever, but it is beautifully done, fresh and focused, with the structure nicely supporting that fruit. I wasn't sure if it had enough energy, but it blossomed when retasted the next day. I loved the juicy finish and its "dance across the tongue" demeanor. This may not be one of those old-school Soalheiros that seems to last forever, but it should still age reasonably, perhaps better than indicated. At the beginning of the drinking window, it drinks great now, but it can still improve a little." —Wine Advocate

"Aveleda is produced in our winery with grapes from the Vinho Verde region — the most extensive in Portugal. The careful temperature control during the winemaking process produces a wine that is slightly citrine in color, clear and bright. Its gentle and fruity aroma gives it a smooth, delicate flavor." —winemaker

Blend: Azal, Arinto, Loureiro, Trajadura

"On the nose we find citric and herbal notes such as grapefruit and thyme. On the palate the wine shows a gastronomic profile, volume and a creamy texture with hints of stone fruits, white pepper and a vegetal side to it. It will age well in bottle." —winemaker

"An expressive wine both inside and out and bears great aromatic freshness on the nose. This rosé wine has subtle, fruity notes with hints of peach and pink grapefruit. Its elegant palate pairs perfectly with its colourful and playful label. While The Pale is bone dry, the finish is soft and creamy with undeniable elegance." —winemaker
