Estate Collection 2015 (Magnum) White

This wine is the result of a unique blend of traditional grape varieties from the Lisbon region - Fernão Pires and Arinto, with Antão Vaz, and a touch of the French Roussanne and Sauvignon Gris. It represents well the universe of grape varieties that surpassed the vast variety of Quinta do Pinto and our constant search to create unique batches harmonizing varieties of different origins.

National grape varieties appear in the foreground, imposing their personality and particularity, while international grape varieties appear immediately afterwards, with all their complexity and delicacy to enhance the aroma and the mouth.
