Quinta do Lagar Novo Arinto 2017

Introducing Arinto, the darling grape variety of Lisbon.  This variety is indigenous and thus is entitled (unlike the imported varieties above) to the appellation of DOC Alenquer.  This is a unique variety, making for an incredibly interesting wine.  The hallmarks are acidity, mineral notes and austerity.  This is a gastronomic wine.  While the other wines listed above can easily be consumed on their own this one begs for seafood.  Appropriately sealed with a wax capsule, this wine can be cellared for many years to come for added complexity.  We know we'll be cellaring some.
