Soalheiro Espumante Bruto Barrica 2014

The Soalheiro Espumante Bruto Barrica ferments and age in used oak barrels for 12 months before the second fermentation. This aging will give the sparkling wine a more evolutive and intense aroma character, as well as a higher flavor and more persistent texture. The permanence in the winery at the low and constant temperature for 36 months allowed this sparkling wine to show all the elegance of the Alvarinho variety in a perspective of greater complexity and less fruit.
