Campos de Cima Três Bocas Branco 2022 (Alvarinho/Assyrtiko/Arinto)
After the stunning success of the 2021 it’s great to able to offer the latest, delicious 2022 vintage of this three grape white blend.
The 2022 features Alvarinho 45% (‘Albariño’ in Spanish), Assyrtiko (40%) and Arinto (15%) – a fascinating, if not unique, blend of Portuguese grapes and the Greek Assyrtiko, which is native to the island of Santorini. Remarkably, the wine is produced from a 15 htrs. vineyard situated in the far southwest of Brazil, on the border with Argentina.
Full tasting note will follow but this white features a zesty, refreshing lemon and lime acidity, a hint of pear(?) on the nose, and a backbone of minerality with a lingering finish. To be enjoyed well chilled as an aperitif or paired with salads, seafood, fish or white meat dishes.
Vegan & vegetarian friendly, 12.5% Abv.
PS. the last few cases remain of the Três Bocas Branco 2021. This blend includes some Viognier, and no Assyrtiko, so is a little heavier & more textured on the palate, with stone fruit flavours especially evident.
