This is not the Soalheiro Reserve. It is the Soalheiro Nature Pur Terroir, 1st 100% biological wine from the property. Still not on Delectable.

My 2nd favourite wine is not filtered and 100% biological. There are no artificial stuff here and it is all about a great vineyard management.

Let's describe this Nature's great gift.

Great acidity as common on the Alvarinho grape, full bodied and long finish (you can taste in for a good while).

Let's get into the beauty of the aromas and flavours this one gives us. Amazing herbaceous 1st kick with green bell pepper and grass, followed by a great apple and pear (green fruits). After that, thanks to be unfiltered and be in contact with lees until you have the luck to swallow it, you'll have an amazing biscuit, bread mouth coating, with a buttery feeling thanks to the Malolactic fermentation (also known as malolactic conversion or MLF, is a process in winemaking in which tart-tasting malic acid, naturally present in grape must, is converted to softer-tasting lactic acid).

Great work on the field and great 1st Biological wine from this property. I can't wait to taste next year's!

Hopefully it'll have some great stone and tropical fruits to make it even more amazing.

Kudos to their team.

This was a delight. Natural alvarinho. Full of expression... acid galore. Herbs and grass, plus a late kick of apple pie.
