We are one of only a few wineries in Australia to produce this interesting and versatile wine. We first planted Arinto, a Portuguese white variety, in 2015 and first released a bottled wine in 2018. A stand-out wine from our 2019 vintage, our second release received a Top Gold at the Victorian Wines Show. Only a tiny amount was bottled due to a very dry and challenging growing season, so we're giving Quinta Club and VP Club members the first opportunity to buy this wine, with a maximum 3 bottles per person. It won't be available in Cellar Door or online.
Released to Quinta Club and VP members November 2019. RRP $30.00

Rare in Australia, Arinto has found a perfect new home in Rutherglen. This wine is refreshing with with a brilliant light straw colour shining in the glass. it has inviting aromas of lemon curd and herbaceous Asian spices. The palate zings with freshness from a mouth-filling texture and lifted citrus and peach flavours. The finish is long and crisp with elements of lime sorbet and soft acids.
Picked in the early morning to protect the fruit, which was immediately crushed and pressed to tank. We kept the pressings separate to use for our White Fortified. The wine was fermented with a neutral yeast to preserve the varietal flavours. This wine was entirely kept in stainless steel prior to bottling. Some wineries use oak, but as this was the first time we have made this wine, we wanted to see how the wine turned out without any external factors.
