Grape Variety: 50% Encruzado, 30% Bical and 20% Malvasia Fina grapes.
The Dão region is known for its typical local grape varieties. Oenologist Reinaldo Pinho is a strong proponent of working with these grapes and doesn’t really like the French or Spanish varieties. A decision that we understand well from his point of view! Because thanks to the influences from the Atlantic Ocean and the therefore humid winters, the Dão is an excellent region for refined white wines made from local grapes.
The Encruzado grape is a star and is typical of the Dão region. The grape has a wonderful balance between acidity and natural sugars. In addition, notes of citrus, resin and minerals contribute to the layering of the wine.
A wonderful companion for fish and shellfish.
