Meet the Winemaker Series – Portugal’s finest…Quinta dos Carvalhais
We are so excited to be tasting three of the delicious new wines from Quinta dos Carvalhais along with their UK Brand Ambassador.
Portugal’s Dão region is often overshadowed by its more famous northerly neighbour, the Douro. However, Dão wines are beginning to demand serious attention and we love them! If Douro is Portugal’s Bordeaux, producing hearty and powerful wines, then Dão is its Burgundy, producing graceful and precise wines.
Quinta dos Carvalhais is one of the most respected producers in the Dão region with outstanding quality winemaking and sustainable viticultural practices, replanting the region’s indigenous grape varieties, such as Touriga Nacional and Encruzado.
We will enjoy the following outstanding wines:
Alfrocheiro – a prized red variety native to the Dão. Full of juicy blackberry and spice, coupled with fine-grained tannins and a bright acidity with a delicious earthy complexity reminiscent of that of aged Pinot Noir.
Colheita Tinto – a blend of Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Tinta Roriz and Jaen . Delicious dark fruit aromas with a perfectly integrated spiciness and supple tannins.
Encruzado – full bodied but balanced wine with stunning acidity and aromatics…akin to white Burgundy. Full of citrus vibrancy with delicious toasty notes.
