Native to Portugal

Arinto might be the new kid on the block in Australia, but is set to be the next darling variety of consumers and winemaker alike. There is so much to love here…

With its steely backbone and racy acidity, Arinto is fresh flavoursome and expressive with layers of texture and complexity.

Pale to medium straw.

Winemaker Notes

After harvesting the fruit during the cool of the night, the team gently pressed it for cold settling. They fermented the pressings in small format old barrels, while the free run underwent the majority of fermentation in stainless steel before being partially transferred to barrels for infusing spice and texture. Subsequently, they matured the wine on lees before proceeding with filtration and bottling.
