Quinta do Paral Colheita Seleccionada Branco
Quinta do Paral is located near Vidigueira in the heart of Portugal and is spread out over 100 hectares of land. With its gently rolling hills and vast openness, the Alentejo region offers a truly unique landscape. Its true potential however lies deeper: fertile clay, granite and slate soils as well as a unique microclimate create optimal conditions for a unique terroir. The excellent quality of the grape varieties allows us to produce high quality wines that express the distinctive character of the Alentejo.
With the acquisition of Quinta do Paral by entrepreneur Dieter Morszeck, the winery was realigned in collaboration with chief enologist Luís Morgado Leão and the autochthonous varieties of 40 year old vines experienced a renaissance. Today, the winery focuses on sustainability and craftsmanship combined with great respect for the Alentejo culture. Manual picking, natural grape care and strict yield reduction ensure the high quality of the wines.
90% Arinto, 10% Vermentino. The nose is fresh and delicate. Because of its fine acidity, the Arinto grape is frequently compared with Riesling.
Complex aromas with lime and lemon notes, combined with the minerality of the grapes. Very good acidity which gives a persistent and unique freshness.
