Aveleda Solos de Xisto is produced with the best Alvarinho bunches from Aveleda grown in schist soils. The harvest is manual with cluster selection. The grapes are cooled until arriving at the vinification center where they undergo soft pressing at low pressures. Alcoholic fermentation and aging happen in stainless steel vats, where the wine ages for 9 months with bâttonage. The wine rests in bottle for another 9 months before being released.
With a beautiful hue of pale yellow, Aveleda Solos de Xisto is discreet on the nose with delicate aromas of jasmine and ripe peaches. On the palate, the structure is velvety and creamy, blending in perfection with the more gourmand notes of mangoes, peaches and ripe grapefruit. It's an extremely elegant wine and this harmony of aromas makes it perfect to enjoy by itself or pairing with more delicate dishes.
