Monólogo Arinto P24 is a monovarietal wine produced with grapes from the plot P24 at Quinta de Santa Teresa, relying on organic and sustainable farming practices.
The winter of 2017 was relatively dry. However, this trend inverted completely during the 2018 Spring, which registered far greater levels of precipitation than the average levels of rainfall for this time. These rains forced us to apply treatments in the vineyards for mildew and oidium.
Summer, on the other hand, was hot and dry, the average temperatures in August and September being much higher than the annual averages for these months. Despite the intense heat, the generality of the vines went thru the season without any issues, only a few parcels registering some burns in the first week of August.
The harvest of this parcel started early, on 27 of September, in consequence of the hot summer.
Grape variety of great quality that produces vibrant and aromatic portuguese white wines, typically grown in the vinho verde region. Also known by the name Pedernã, it has good acidity and a mineral character that goes well with its citrus and tree fruit flavours. Arinto has bunches of a medium size with small grapes that are tightly together and lead to medium yields.
