Soito Wines, created in 2013, is one of Dão’s youngest and most promising projects. At Quinta do Soito, with an already long wine tradition, two teachers gave wings to the dream of transforming the family farm into a reference producer, with wines of exceptional quality.
The Dão region is located in Beira Alta, in the north of Portugal. The geographical conditions there are excellent for wine production: the Serras do Caramulo, Montemuro, Buçaco and Estrela protect the vineyards from the influence of winds.
The vineyards are planted in the sub region of Terras de Azurara, a place with Mediterranean climate and granitic soils. The vineyard was generous and provided a density of 3500 to 4000 feet per hectare, giving 5 tons of grapes per hectare.
Classic vinification, ageing partially in French oak barrels and batonnage for 4 months. The fermentation was controlled up to 16ºC for 3 weeks.
Very elegant with notes of linden, lemon balm and orange blossom married with nuances of white flesh fruits, flanked by delicate citrus and balsamic expressions. The palate has a very balanced freshness and volume, with exquisite structure, crispy acidity, with a long and persistent finish, all in a profile of good harmony and elegance.
This wine should be served at a temperature of 12ºC to accompany fish, seafood dishes and light white meat.
