Mar do Inferno Arinto Atlântico 2021

18.25

Description

Mar do Inferno means “sea of hell”, this Arinto grown on sedimentary soils with a high limestone content, within a breath (or a good gust of wind) of the Atlantic ocean just north of Lisbon. Grapes are harvested in the middle of the night, cool fermented in steel before short maturation in concrete; this is all about the fruit.

The nose is quite pronounced, a refreshing cocktail of citrus zest, floral notes and even a hint of hazelnut. Bright and bracing on the open, the palate is marked by a silky texture, fine chalk and a saline influence, with fleshy hints of stone fruit, finishing clean and crisp with a citrus twist and nice length.

Magnificent with seafood, particularly shellfish dishes, try with buttery garlic prawns, it can even handle spicy dishes.

Producer: Garrocha Family Vineyards

Garrocha family vineyards and winery were established in 1945 by Francisco Caetano Macieira, the man behind the famous moustache that adorns one of the winery's signature wines today. Current owner and winemaker is also Francisco Maciera, the founder's great grandson and the fourth generation to produce wines from the three family estates just outside Lisbon. All grapes come from the family's vineyards with Portuguese varietals such as Touriga Nacional, Sousão and Maria Gomes planted alongside international varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo (Tinta Roriz) and Sauvignon Blanc.
