What am I: Quinta de San Michel Malvarinto de Janas is a Lisbon region producer, located in the hills of Sintra above Colares. Janas wines have a unique complexity, thanks to their altitude and to the proximity of the Ocean and the Serra de Sintra, as well as great sun exposure. This microclimate brings special conditions for the production of complex wines, full of freshness and tension, with perfumed and salty aromas, being balanced with a pleasant texture and volume, which allow it to acquire an enormous potential for evolution.
Malvarinto de Janas has the aromatic complexity present in Malvasia wine, with the crunchy acidity of Arinto. It is a very particular combination that makes this white wine special and unique.
It is straw yellow in color, fresh, and with excellent aromatic complexity, from notes of citrus, peach, pineapple, seaweed, coconut, and some balsamic. In the mouth, it has vibrant acidity, and at the end a saline component that gives you a long and persistent finish.
