Pale greenish yellow in color. Very intense aroma, delicate, with nuances of fruit and very soft toasted notes. Balanced and with a long and intense finish. Perceptible mineral notes in the aroma and flavour that give it complexity and longevity. Good acidity, refined and elegant. Enormous aging capacity.
The year 2021 was characterized by a general delay in the development of the successive cycles of the vine we were handed a regular and cyclical rainfall, cold at flowering and conditions for the development of a significant reduction in production. However, the grapes that were harvested at the end of September were of exemplary quality, so we look forward to an absolutely exceptional vintage of 2021 in both whites and reds. During vinification, there is a skin maceration for 12 hours, followed by alcoholic fermentation at 16ºC, using only the purest tear must. This wine is made exclusively with the Encruzado variety, typical and exclusive to the Dão region. 40% of the wine is fermented in French oak barrels for 1 year and battonage is made (stirring the fine lees to increase the wine’s gustatory structure) for 3 months.
