Wine Grape Varieties
Producing full-bodied, deeply coloured wines with complex, spicy flavours, The Alicante Bouschet grape variety is now mainly grown in Spain and Portugal but you may also find it in France, Italy and California. Pair with grilled meats or tomato based pasta dishes.
Arinto, which is often blended with the Fernão Pires grape, produces wines that are fairly high in acidity making them refreshing, citrusy and light. Seafood, asparagus and pork are a wonderful match for lively Arinto.
Arneis is a perfumed white grape variety grown in Piedmont in Italy. It is the main grape used in the Roero Arneis appellation and is also used in white wines from the Langhe region. It tends to produce wines that have floral aromas and flavours of orchard fruit and citrus fruit.
Arrufiac is a white grape variety mainly grown in Gascony in the south west of France primarily used to make late harvested, sweet Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh wines. Although sweet, wines produced from this grape variety have a great balance of sweetness and acidity.
