A pure expression of Arinto sourced from 23 year old vineyards 28 miles northwest of Lisbon, this refreshing white is vinified in stainless steel vats and aged for 6 months on the lees before bottling.

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.
