Encruzado Quinta dos Carvalhais, Dão
A hidden gem..Encruzado is a famous grape in Portugal and should be world famous in my opinion!
This wine is clean, precise and has great depth of richness and minerallity.
The Quinta dos Carvalhais is a beautiful property in Mangualde commune in the Dão with vineyards dedicated to noble regional grape varieties. The estate combines extensive experience of traditional winemaking practices with the most up-to-date techniques, creating wines of great elegance and a unique personality. It has also been instrumental in defending the interests and living conditions of many small winegrowers who deliver their grapes there. Quinta dos Carvalhais exclusively uses its own grapes to produce exceptional wines that honour the Dão tradition and reputation.
