Tasting Notes

This is a new addition to our growing Portuguese portfolio from the enterprising Adega de Penalva Cooperative in Dao. It's a seriously drinkable combo of 3 local grapes- encruzado, malvasia fina and cerceal giving a fruity, lightly creamy white with a fresh spicy lift. If you're developing sauvignon-fatigue try this for a refreshing and interesting change.

****

This winery is owned by local farmers, who carefully work the land within the prime sub-region of Dao, Castendo. Surrounding mountains create a peculiar sub-climate with rainy winters and very hot and dry summers. The soils are sandy over schist and granite. The wines translate the dazzling landscape of mountains cut out by their rivers into full-bodied, dense and aromatic delight to the senses. The winery has been well modernised, but still implements a rigorous selection process producing 6 million litres per year. Made exclusively from traditional Dao grape varieties, the wines provide unprecedented combination of quality and value.
