Arinto White wine Variety

This is a Portuguese white wine variety from the region of Bucelas just north of Lisbon.  In fact the variety is also know as Arinto de Bucelas.

Arinto is highly regarded as a variety that adds acidity in in blends

Arinto is fairly common in its native Portugal where it is prized  for its ability to retain acidity even in hot climates. Little is grown outside its native land. 

Arinto In Australia

This variety is a recent arrival here. It has attracted the attention of grape growers and winemakers in hotter Australian wine regions with an eye to finding suitable varieties to adapt to climate change.

Early results have been quite promising but it is early days yet.
