Golden yellow colour, the aroma is complex with notes of fresh and citrus fruits from the Arinto grape and notes of smoke from the Chardonnay. Good structure and balance between the acidity and the freshness of the Arinto, the maturation of the Chardonnay and the elegance of the wood, the finish is intense and very persistent. Arinto (60%), Chardonnay (40%)
Quinta da Alorna has a long and illustrious history stretching back to the 18th century, sitting majestically in the Tejo region. The estate has a wide array of vineyards which are worked in a sustainable and socially responsible way, looking after both the land and the workers.
Portugal's trump card is its wide array of toothsome indigenous varieties and they are put to good work here. Aromatic Fernao Pires, tight, minerally Arinto and the Portuguese iteration of Tempranillo, Tinto Roriz, are amongst the bevy of blindingly tasty components that they have to work with and the result is an accomplished range of distinctly Portuguese wines.
