Why we love this wine
Grapes & TerroirThis wine is the result of a unique blend of the traditional Lisbon grapes – Arinto and Fernão Pires, with Viosinho, together with the characterful French grapes Roussanne, Viognier, and Chardonnay. It represents the diversity of grape varieties planted at Quinta do Pinto Estate and the family’s constant search to create unique blends by harmonizing grapes of different origins. The Portuguese varieties arise in the forefront, imposing their personality, while the French grapes follow with all their complexity and delicacy.
ViticultureCertified integrated production, herbicide- free.
WinemakingCareful management of vegetation to optimize the aromatic potential of grapes. Manual harvest followed by the selection of the best bunches at the entrance of the cellar. Stemming and crushing, the must was clarified by natural settling in refrigerated vats. Fermentation by grape variety with indigenous yeasts in cement tanks with a controlled temperature of 15-16ºC. The Roussanne fermented and aged in used 500L French oak barrels.
TastingBrilliant yellow-citrus colour. Intense notes of citrus, white fruit, and subtle tropical, along with hints of honey and some salinity. A rich wine due to the diversity of fresh fruit. Nice minerality and balanced acidity support the structure and creaminess of the wine. Long and persistent finish.
Makers MatchSeafood dishes and fish, especially grilled. Rich salads.
