Wines for Mid-summer Night
Paxis Arinto 2011 – no. 9678806 – Kr. 329;
80 points / Dice: 6 of 6
Region/country: Lisbon, Portugal
This is a star example of Portugal’s many charming and reasonable wines. Fresh and dry white wine produced from the local Arinto grape. Aromas of green apples, lime and flowers. Refreshingly tart in the mouth. Dry and citrusy finish. A versatile wine that will be great with fresh prawns. A perfect summer wine.
