Maçanita Quanto + Arinto + Gosto de ti 2017

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalHow much plus arinto do I love you? This Douro arinto comes from vineyards up to 550m, was whole bunch pressed and fermented in a mix of 70% older barrique and 30% stainless. Lovely to see arinto with some age, still holding its acid backbone, but wrapped with pine nuts, kernel, honeysuckle, with kisses of brown butter on the saline finish. There is a lovely completeness to this wine, drinking now.Tasted: 29 August 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 73.85 LCBO Producer: MaçanitaDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
