The Espumante Bruto Barrica is the latest release from Soalheiro. The Alvarinho grapes are from the 2017 vintage and are fermented and aged in used oak barrels for 12 months before second fermentation in bottle. The wine is then aged for 36 months on its lees before disgorgement. This is an Alvarinho sparkling wine with a different perspective, greater complexity and less fruit. Very versatile accompanying a great diversity of cuisines. Clearly a sparkling wine for meat or intense gastronomy.
