Estate Collection 2016 White

This wine is the fruit of a unique batch of the traditional castes of the region of Lisbon - Fernão Pires and Arinto, with Antão Vaz, and a touch of French Roussanne, Chardonnay and Semillon. It represents well the universe of vine varieties that constitute the vast vineyard of Quinta do Pinto and our constant search to create unique lots, harmonizing varieties of different origins. National breeds emerge in the foreground, imposing their personality and particularity, while the international caste soon appear, with all its complexity and delicacy, to highlight the aroma and the evidence.
