Quinta do Pinto Grande Escolha (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
Authentically Portuguese twist on this classic Rhone blend.
Quinta do Pinto's gently sloping vineyards have a southern exposure, clay-limestone soils, and are sheltered from the northern winds by the Montejunto Mountain. The Viognier (60%), Chardonnay (25%), Marsanne (10%) and Arinto (5%) grapes are hand-harvested in 18kg crates - only the best bunches are selected to be pressed. Temperature-controlled fermentation with indigenous yeasts takes place, followed by batonnage in new 225 litre French oak barrels. 9 months maturation on fine lees in barrel is followed by a further year in bottle.
Intense nose of tropical and stone fruit characters with a touch of brioche and spice. The palate is ripe and textural with mango, peach and apricot, and honey and almond notes leading to a full and long finish with freshly balanced acidity.
Pair with chicken, fish and pork dishes.
