The front label states this is a 50/50 blend of Arinto and Alvarinho.  This is a beautiful wine that seems to take Portugese whites, which are often inexpensive and lighter in style, to a more serious place.  At times, this can be a mistake with over zealous winemakers, but in this case, they pull it off admirably.  Light golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose has peaches/nectarines, crushed shells, slight vanilla and spice, and a bit of lime zest.  Medium bodied.  Moderate acidity.  Silky texture.  On the palate, lemon/lime with some leaches.  A twang of lemon tartness comes thru on the finish.  This drinks well on its own and should be very food friendly.  This will work great with Chicken and Rice.
