Quinta das Arcas Arca Nova Branco, Vinho Verde

Quinta das Arcas Arca Nova Branco, Vinho Verde

A blend of mainly Loureiro and Arinto with a small amount of Trajadura, grown in the relatively cool climate of northern Portugal. Each of the varieties brings something different to the blend; Loureiro has a fresh, herbal outlook, Arinto provides citrus fruit and notes of stone-fruit, whilst Trajadura brings apple, pear and hints of peach. The grapes are mostly picked by hand and transported to the winery quickly to preserve their aromatic character. Fruity and fresh with a light-body, it shows green apple and a soft minerality with a touch of spritz on the finish.
