The Arinto grape variety heralds from Portugal and is one of their most important white grape varieties. It is widely used in their famous Vihno Verde blends but will also make exceptional dry white table wine. The fruit for our 2023 Arinto was sourced from our Degraves Road vineyard at Crowlands.
Fruit was harvested on March 24th and gently crushed prior to fermentation with wild yeast. No additions or fining agents were made to the wine. The resulting wine has lovely floral and lime aromatics. The palate is crisp and dry with beautiful textural depth and lovely natural acid. The wine will continue to grow in bottle. A beautifully perfumed balanced wine from a great cool climate vintage.
