Quinta do Pinto 2018 Estate Collection White
Despite our leaning towards native varieties, we were entirely convinced by this original blend with roughly half classic French cépages. Dry, lithe and incisive, it evokes both Chablis and the Rhône while ending up as a distinctly Portuguese wine. Like us, please put aside your prejudices and enjoy this as a piece of vinous art.
Fernão Pires (20%) Viosinho (20%) Chardonnay (20%) , Arinto (15%) Roussanne (15%) Chenin Blanc (10%)
