The 2016 harvests of whites Quinta de Chocapalha are already on the market. To the three monocastas Quinta de Chocapalha Chardonnay, Arinto and Sauvignon Blanc join the bivarietal composed by Viosinho and Arinto. A collection of Portuguese and foreign castes that found in Quinta de Chocapalha, in Alenquer, a unique microclimate, provided by the presence of the mountain range Montejunto, the layout of the vineyards on the hill and the proximity of the sea. The combination of these factors results in fresh, elegant, gastronomic and guardian wines.
A highlight for Quinta de Chocapalha Chardonnay, white 2016, which is very aromatic, fresh and with great minerality, a reflection of the Atlantic breeze. The Quinta de Chocapalha Arinto, white 2016, expresses the full potential of the arinto variety, revealing an aromatic complexity with good citrus and mineral notes. Freshness, balance and acidity stand out in the mouth. For its part, Quinta de Chocapalha Sauvignon Blanc, white 2016, proves to be a wine with an extraordinary volume of mouth, with notes of asparagus and fresh tropical fruits. The persistent finish, the good acidity and elegance characterize the Quinta de Chocapalha bivarietal, white 2016, composed of 90% of Viosinho and 10% of Arinto.
The four whites come from vineyards with an average age of 25 years planted by the Tavares da Silva family who, after acquiring the property in the 80s, invested in the total replanting of the 45 hectares of vineyard, in the restructuring of the winery and introduced new techniques of cultivation with the intention of giving continuity to the old traditions of this fifth vineyard. Quinta de Chocapalha is a family project of passion led by the couple Alice and Paulo Tavares da Silva and by the three daughters, Sofia, Andrea and Sandra (the titular oenologist).
