REGIONTerras Do Dao
A blend of Encruzado and Bical from 25 year old vines fermented in 30 percent new and 70 percent used French oak barrels. Aged for 8 months on the lees with slight batonnage, the wine displays a beautiful golden color. The nose is mysterious, with notes of flint and minerality, arising among white fruit and flowery aromas. Very elegant on the palate, with fine texture and lively acidity. A wine with unique character that will continue to evolve over years in the bottle.
This wine pairs perfectly with grilled fish dishes. Try a robalo grelhado (grilled seabass) accompanied by a light salada mista (mixed salad). Shellfish also pairs well, such as sapateira (stone crab) mexilhões (mussels) and ameijoas (clams) as well as soft and creamy sheep and goats milk cheese.
