Wine & Spirits:

"An alvarinho grown in the hills east of Porto, this wine has a powerful grip to its sweet, peachy fruit, a balance of refreshing lemony acidity and the saline abrasion of a brisk, coastal white. There’s a slight tutti-frutti yeast character, but overall the flavors feel charged, magnifying their pale earthiness and the cool sense of an ocean breeze.

Product Description:

"Tasting Notes: Bright straw yellow color with complex flowery aromas of peaches and exotic fruits. Mild acidity with spice and citrus flavors that carry into the smooth finish. Quinta das Arcas is a small family owned and operated estate. All of their grapes are estate grown between their 4 estates in the Vinho Verde and Alentejo regions. Their vines are trellised so the clusters are growing about 6 feet above the ground to allow the wind to remove the humidity. The Monteiro family also produces other agricultural products including cheeses and meats. Practices sustainable farming" Importer
