We're about 50km north of Lisbon here, just a few clicks from the coast. The soils are mostly Kimmeridgian clay, similar to those found in Chablis, with high proportion of ocean fossils meaning more calcium carbonate content. The vineyards are just 9km inland, with fresh Atlantic breezes to bathe the vineyards, further enhancing the saline element in the wines and tempering the warmth of the region.

A rich and generous Portugese bottling with a lick of minerality keeping things fresh, this is proper big boy wine with salty Chablis come Loire Chenin Blanc vibes. 

Vale de Capucha, Arinto, 2018
