Looking for a new thirst-quenching, food-friendly white? Quinta da Alorna hits the spot. Portugal's wines are finally getting the recognition they deserve and this producer is one of the best in the Tejo regions. This example is a blend of Arinto and Ferñao Pires, two local Portuguese grapes noted for producing aromatic, refreshing wines with character to stand up to food.
A pale yellow wine with green tints and a nose of tropical (pineapple) and citrus (lemon) fruit aromas. Very refreshing palate with lively, crisp acidity balanced by lively fruit aromas and a pleasant finish. Enjoy with appetizers, shellfish and grilled fish dishes.
