Wine Quinta das Arcas, Conde Villar Alvarinho, 2018
Alvarinho, one of Portugal's signature whites, is beautifully represented with this wine. As an elegant, floral and rich expression, Quinta das Arcas has captured what the variety is capable of.
White - A signature Portuguese variety offers excellent elegance, richness, aromatics, and a persistent finish.
Clear with light hay hues. Abundant yet elegant floral scents paired with pleasant and fresh fragrances of lemon and orange tree blossoming. Finishes with tropical aromas. On the palate, it has a very rich structure with a full body and soft feel. Good finish.
Perfect as an aperitif during the summer season, this wine also pairs perfectly with fish, poultry, salads, Asian and Mediterranean food. Also a good match for 'tapas'.
