Quinta do Casal Monteiro, Chardonnay & Arinto

Chardonnay | Arinto

2018

Made with Chardonnay and Arinto grape varieties from our 30 year old vineyard, rooted in fresh alluvial soil. Harvested at the optimum stage of grape maturation to obtain a singular wine, full of aromatic complexity, freshness and structured mouth feel.

Best enjoyed with soft cheese, fish and white meats.

12-15ºC (54-59ºF)

The grapes are totally destemmed and pressed by means of a pneumatic press. Must is cleared by static defecation and fermented in stainless steel vats at the controlled temperature of 16ºC. Before the last third of fermentation process, part of the Chardonnay (about 20%) is diverted to new french barrels to end fermentation and ageing for another 3 months, undergoing battonage.
