2018 Quinta de Sant'Ana Arinto
Arinto is a local varietal, that's mid to late ripening. This allows the grape to stay on the vine for an extended period, developing additional complexity and depth. This, coupled with the grape's naturally high acidity (think Portuguese Riesling), combines for a deliciously wonderful white. It's also completely organic.
Two years in barrel with battonage only when topping up. The wine was then moved to horizontal stainless steel tank where it spent 10 months on lees before bottling.
Tasting Note: Golden yellow. An evolved, beautiful balance of honeyed and preserved lemon and grapefruit, entangled with more complex notes of cloves, quince, and a certain nuttiness – coconut perhaps. Seamlessly integrated oak. Richer, smoky notes of vanilla, brioche and butter croissants and a rounder mouthfeel are kept balanced by searing acidity.
Origin: Lisbon, Portugal
