ABOUT QUINTA DO LAGAR NOVO - MARSANNE RESERVA BRANCO 2016 - PORTUGUESE WHITE WINE
Quinta do Lagar Novo is located 35km from Lisbon, in Alenquer. It was acquired by the Elias Gonçalves de Carvalho family in the 1940s. The name Lagar Novo arose in 1742, at which time two wineries of stick and spindle were built. After 30 years of table grapes, in 2005, a new era begins, with the planting of four grape varieties. A year later the first grapes were vinified in the winery, three references that remain: Chardonnay, Viognier and 5ª of Lagar Novo. These were later joined by the Arinto and the Marsanne.
