Cabrita Native Grapes ARINTO (100%)

ALGARVE REGIONAL WINE

This Wine from the Algarve, Cabrita Native Grapes Moscatel 2017 is produced in the south of Portugal, in the Algarve region. We are facing a region with a very specific climate, in which it is close to the sea, but it also suffers the influence of the mountain (Espinhaço de Cão, Caldeirão and Monchique mountains). The mountains are very important in Algarve farming, as they protect the exploitation from the winds coming from the north. In this way, the climate is hot, dry, with reduced thermal amplitudes and an average of 3000 hours of sunshine per year.

A wine produced on a property where a family legacy started four decades ago, currently having close to 7 hectares of vineyard.

Typical grape varieties reign on these sides, between Crato Branco, Manteúd, Negramole or even Castelão, and with this style it has conquered countless connoisseurs, including several international awards. These grape varieties were joined 15 years ago by Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira and Aragonez.

Manual harvest to small 20kg boxes. The wine ferments with indegenous yeast at controlled temperatures, before a 18 day cuvaison phase folllowed by an 18 month stage in new French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes:  Cabrita Native Grapes ARINTO white Wine is a disconcerting wine, pale yellow in color, in the nose it feels aroma revealed by the tension of the grape variety and its minerality, in the mouth it is an explosion of freshness and fruit, well softened by the creamyness that the stage in lees gives it.

Grapes/varietes: Arinto (100%).

Harmonization: This Cabrita Native Grapes ARINTO white wine is a great company to serve as the right choice of wine to accompany white meat meals, the famous varied fish stews of Portuguese gastronomy and other meals with oven fish.

Serving temperature is: Serve at a temperature between 8 and 10ºC

Responsible for oenology: Joana Maçanita, Eng

lovely wine TOP, TOP, TOP

I bought when visiting Algarve. It starts somewhat sweet, like honey but it follows with citrusy notes and dry taste. I wish I had bought a few more.

Vino bianco colore giallo paglierino moderatamente intenso

Vino bianco colore giallo paglierino moderatamente intenso. Sentire di ananas e frutti esotici. Liscio di buona consistenza e acidità. Articolato al palato. Si sposa bene con pesce di mare, carni bianche ma anche con formaggi sapidi. Ottimo come aperitivo ma anche come vino a tutto pasto.
