Monteiro Chardonnay/Arinto 2015

Monteiro Chardonnay/Arinto 2015

Ref: A081315

Gold Medal at the Wines of Portugal Challenge 2016

Wine Enthusiast Best Buy, October 2015, 90 points.

Quinta do Casal Monteiro is located in one of the most prestigious growing regions in Portugal - the Tejo region. This area takes its name from the Tagus river, which flows through the region and provides a singular diversity in terroir and climate.

This vintage wine is a good example of the resulting harmony from the blend of the Chardonnay and Arinto grape varieties. It presents a clear citrine colour with high aromatic complexity. Well structured mouth feel, freshness and persistence. (13% abv - 2015)

Established in 1979, Quinta do Casal Monteiro bottles limited production vintages exclusively from our 80 hectare vineyard property. These vines are located in alluvial sandy loam soil where, the characteristic of the sub-Mediterranean temperate climate and its proximity to the river Tagus, provide our vintages with their own specific identity. This identity is reflected in both the aromas and the palate of our vintages which are very rich in fruit tones and reveal in general superb acidity - Excellent food companions.

The grapes are totally destemmed and crushed by means of a pneumatic press followed by static defecation for 36 hours. Fermentation is processed at controlled temperature.

We are pleased to announce that Luis M. A. Santos is the new Winemaker at Quinta do Casal Monteiro. After a 7 years experience as resident winemaker at Carregal do Sal (Quinta de Cabriz), Luis is currently in charge of both the winegrowing and winemaking divisions of Quinta do Casal Monteiro being responsible for all wine products produced and bottled at the Estate.

Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
A fantastic white Burgundy from Jean-Marc Morey, Côte de Beaune, which exhibits a purity of rich fruit (coupled with a mouth-tingling freshness) that is rare to find.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Doucinello 2011
Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
