Quinta de Chocapalha Arinto 2017
|Brand||Quinta de Chocapalha|
Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Arinto is unoaked and comes in at 12.5% alcohol. In bottle about 90 days when tasted, this was in good shape. Chocapalha consistently overachieves with this inexpensive Arinto, and this is another fine vintage. Showing beautiful tension and fine concentration for the level, this is focused, tightly wound, fresh and persistent. I hate to sound like a broken record, but this one, the 2016 and 2015 all seem to be on par. You certainly won't be disappointed at this price level.
Wine SpectatorA lip-smacking acidity cuts through the lemon, mineral and herb flavors of this light-bodied white, with herb-tinged undertones flanking the crunchy peach notes on the crisp, salty finish. Drink now through 2022.
Wine EnthusiastOld-vine Arinto has been selected for this wine for its fragrance, delicious fruit and good acidity. The wine is lively, perfumed and crisply textured. Drink now.
