Quinta do Pinto 2020 Vinhas do Lasso Colheita Seleccionada White
The synergy between these two grapes is akin to that of Semillon and Sauvignon. Arinto provides the fruit and substance, while Fernão Pires, with its Muscat-like qualities, supplies aromatic lift and nervosity. The end result here is a simply impeccable mid-weight wine that sports lovely freshness, an enticing oriental spice nose, perfect texture and excellent acidity.
