Quinta de Chocapalha ArintoRegular price $17.99
Originally acquired in the 1980’s, the 110 acres of nearly abandoned vineyards discovered on the estate dated back to the 16th century; the family immediately embarked on an investment program to replant and regraft the vines with the thriving varietals of the area, both indigenous and international. In 2000, the new plantings had reached optimal maturity when Sandra Tavares, the youngest daughter made her first debut as a winemaker, passionate and eager to produce wine with only the best grapes found on the estate.
'The 2020 Arinto is unoaked, dry and comes in at 12.4% alcohol. The winery considers this its best white grape, and it is easy to see why. As it is made here, it has decent concentration, better acidity and appealing freshness. It's always a pleasure to drink, a perfect summer white. This can age a decade or so, but it drinks great now too. This, the winery says, was from a cool year. The vintage may have been warm in other places, they said, but here it was not. The freshness shows.' - Wine Advocate - 89 points
