Download info sheet


In a region where granite covers 90% of the surface, this range also explores the rare schist varieties that exist and how the different soils are reflected in the wines. Granite is an igneous rock, naturally poorer in nutrients. With high acidity and a very low water retention index, granite soils cause more difficulties for the plant, resulting in elegant wines with mineral notes and an exuberant, fresh aromatic profile. Manual harvesting with berry selection and bunch cooling, followed by gentle pressing at low pressure. Fermentation and extended ageing in stainless steel vats with bâttonage, followed by extended ageing in bottle. Vibrant, elegant, and persistent, Aveleda Solos de Granito 2022 shows a harmonious blend of minerality and tropical pineapple undertones. The granite soil imparts a distinct character, contributing to a saline sensation on the palate. This is a wine with a bold and seamlessly firm personality.
