Parker über: Arinto dos Acores Sur Lies

-- Parker: The 2019 Arinto dos Açores Sur Lies is mostly unoaked (20% of the juice was in neutral wood), bone dry (half a gram of residual sugar) and comes in at 12.4% alcohol. As much as I like the winery's 'regular' Arinto, I usually find this to be a small step up. This year they are pretty close. More importantly, the style is rather different. It depends ultimately on what you like—and that's why you read the tasting notes, not just look at the scores. This is rounder and more caressing in texture but less zippy. The concentration is better and it soaks up the acidity a bit more, creating a rather different balance. While this more easily counters the acidity and seems less penetrating as a result, don't be confused—it has plenty of acidity. It's just a matter of perception and incremental change. Overall, this looks poised to age well. It will be interesting to see how it develops. There were 6,799 bottles produced. 93/100
