Chocapalha Arinto

A pure expression of Arinto sourced from 26 year old vineyards 28 miles northwest of Lisbon, this refreshing white is vinified in stainless steel vats and aged for 5 months on the lees before bottling.

Wine Production

A slow fermentation taking 27 days allows for the development of floral and citrus aromoatics and the 5 months on the lees softens the bracing acidity of the Arinto grape. 

Tasting Notes

Bright lemon yellow in color with a freshly aromatic nose of citrus and tropical fruits, Quinta de Chocapalha Arinto boasts lively acidity and a lingering finish.

Food Pairing

Pairs well with fresh salads, grilled white fish, and roasted chicken.
