Quinta das Arcas Arca Nova Alvarino 2019

Vinhos Verde, Northern Portugal, PortugalIn 1985, Antonio Edwards Monteiro founded the family-owned winery in Alentejo. In 2012, he expanded into Vinho Verde with the purchase of 200 hectares. This alvarinho comes from the Minto, and after some skin contact, was fermented cool, and aged in steel for a few months with weekly b√Ętonnage. Peach-forward, with yellow apple, lime peel and pith and steely pear on a slick, medium-bodied palate, with a fine raspy, granitic grip on the finish. Lovely typicity here.Tasted: 02 May 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: QC 21.80 SAQ Producer: Quinta das ArcasGrape: Alvarinho
