WINE

The brand “Solar de Pinheiro – Paço de São Lourenço” presents three different types of wine. These include two mono-varietal with the grapes Azal and Avesso and also a blend of Azal, Avesso and Alvarinho.

The wine production is the responsibility of the renowned winemaker Jorge Sousa Pinto, an expert with high level of experience and recognized merit. He has won several prizes with the wines he makes, especially in the Demarcated Region of Vinho Verde. The winemaker is responsible for all the productive process, from the harvesting to the bottling of the wine. After harvesting the grapes at perfect ripeness, they are divided by variety and undergo a careful process of winemaking, resulting in a smooth VInho Verde of excellent quality, characterized by a lemony colour and a delicate aroma, fresh and slightly shrunk.

SOLAR DE PINHEIRO ESCOLHA
(blend of 3 different types of grapes: Azal, Avesso and Alvarinho)

Tasting notes:
Clear citrine colour.
Intense bouquet of citrus and tropical fruits.
Pleasant on the palate with restrained acidity, having a long ending finish.
Alcohol: 12%

A ripe wine, with white fruits and a touch of spice. The crisp minerality of Vinho Verde is all there, with a satisfyingly textured aftertaste.

SOLAR DE PINHEIRO AVESSO
Tasting notes:
Clear citrine colour.
An attractive bouquet of intense fresh fruit with tropical hints.
Smooth initial palate, balanced, and fruity with as long finish.
Alcohol: 12,5%

This estate is right in the south of the Vinho Verde. That gives the wine extra weight, with added richness from the Avesso grape. The aftertaste brings in crispness.

SOLAR DE PINHEIRO AZAL
Tasting notes:
Clear citrine colour.
The bouquet is intense with citrine fruit with a hint of minerality.
The palate is pleasant, balanced, with fresh acidity, ending with a fine persistent finish.
Alcohol: 12,5%

From 100% Azal grapes, this is a rich style of Vinho Verde, ripe and citric, touched by minerality. Yeasty aromas go through the palate but don’t detract from the ripe final fruit.

  GRAPES
Like the wines of the brand “Solar de Pinheiro – Paço de São Lourenço”, the grapes are also of excellent quality, resulting from a strict monitoring by engineer Alexandre Sousa Pinto, who has a large experience in monitoring and maturation of grapes. In addition to grape production in the sub-region of Amarante, Viniagra also explores about 19 ha of vineyards in the sub-region Cávado (zone of Amares).
