      Tasting Notes
      One of JNs most popular champagne substitutes. Soalheiro is arguably Portugals best Alvarinho from the sub-region of Monçao e Melgaço which is further from the Atlantic and less rainy than most of the country. The purity elegance and quality of the wines are testament to the careful and skilled winemaking of winemaker António Cerdeira whose previous experience included a period spent in Burgundy.

      This sparkling wine is made in the traditional method which entails a second fermentation in bottle followed by the various procedures that are followed in Champagne production.

      The wine is a vibrant citrus golden colour with fine and persistent bubbles. Lovely aromas flow from the Alvarinho grapes and the wine shows a classy balance between acidity and alcohol. Citrus flavours mingle with mineral and toasted bready notes in a wine which shows excellent persistence and complexity.

      This is a very versatile wine for accompanying a wide range of cuisine. It also makes an ideal aperitif.

      "Pure sparkling Alvarinho, this is fresh, crisp and full of green fruits, apples, and plums that are cut with a citrus line. Lightly perfumed, the wine is ready to drink."
