Arinto on Snooth

  • Caiu a Noite Vinho Verde 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Attractively clear pale yellow color. I hesitate to use this description, but overriding nose sense is "fresh." Not fruity or minerally, or oaky, but more like fresh ocean air. A different thing on the palate. Hint of effervescence. Some citrus tartness, a kind of stark "steely" character. Very light and refreshing as you would expect from... Read More

  • OK, bear with me for a second. These wines may not be amazing in your THIS GOT ... Gouveio, Arinto and Viosinho. A little leesy on the nose with notes of steel, vanilla and flowers adding detail to the citrus/mandarin orange aromas.  Bright acidity  and  fine minerality pop on entry then the midpalate reveals lovely use of oak supporting fine c...

  • Aveleda Vinho Verde Branco 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy on the nose with a bit of sulfur from bottling but beneath that one finds a little  lime leaf and sweet lime and Meyer lemon fruit. Soft and juicy on entry, this shows off fresh lemon and watermelon rind flavors on the palate with a nice dusty almost floral quality in the mouth leading to a soft fairly short finish.  85pts Read More

  • Hi, I see your point. I do not know the city you live in, so it is hard to ... to figure out the best "arinto based" white wines.The best ones are from the "Lisboa" region (formerly known as "Estremadura"), particularly those that come from "Bucelas" (a small region north of Lisbon). A couple of well known brands: "Bucelllas" (Caves Velhas), Pr... Read More

  • Quinta de Chocapalha Arinto Branco 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This lemon (water lily) scented Lisboa wine has considerable acid on entry and is the perfect accompaniment of seafood and fish; Mário de Sá-Carneiro or Fernando Pessoa may have agreed. Anyway, the acidity bodes well for further aging - perhaps adding some grapefruit notes along the way. If you can get this at the price I paid, buy a case. Ex... Read More

  • I was recently transferred to an office in Fremont, CA, which is like a prison sentence in my work, so how do I entertain myself?  I scout out new wine stores.  And, thanks to Yelp, I found this really cool market that specializes in all things Portugese. It's no secret I love Spanish wine, and my experience with Portugese so far has been that i... Read More
