Wine of the Week – Arca Nova Alvarinho 2011

This Colheita 2011 Arca Nova Alvarinho is made with one of Portugal’s most famous white varietals offers good acidity and notes of citrus and tropical fruits. Fresh and elegant, the well structured wine is 13 percent abv. Fernando Machado and Henrique Lopes, the winemakers, have won major awards for their offerings. Grapes are picked by hand and destemmed, then crushed to capture aromas before undergoing fermentation in stainless steel vats. Quinta das Arcas was founded in 1985. Serve this lovely white by the glass as an aperitif or with fish and seafood dishes. Visit http://www.quintadasarcas.com/en/producao.asp
