Quinta da Fonte Souto 2020 White Wine
Quinta da Fonte Souto White Wine reveals clear straw, golden colour. Aromas of subtle, smoky toast with hints of vanilla and floral, honeysuckle notes with a background touch of grapefruit. Appealing creamy texture, punctuated by suggestions of lichee, yellow plum, tea and white pepper spice. The beautiful acidity provides freshness evocative of pine conifer woodland, giving the wine verve and elegance. Good medium-term bottleageing potential.
Quinta da Fonte Souto white wine embodies all the strengths of the property’s unique terroir: the freshness and balance afforded by the altitude; the concentration, which derives from mature, low-yielding vines, and the complexity and structure provided by the barrel fermentation sur-lie (on the lees) with bâtonnage. This white allows for maximum expression of the Arinto, widely regarded as Portugal’s finest white grape variety and has a smaller Verdelho component
