O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2016

The aroma is very elegant, slightly floral. In the mouth, it is alive, and with acidity. It presents a good volume of mouth, without being heavy, offering a perfumed, long and very balanced finish.

Quinta da Pellada

This wine comes from 60-year-old vineyards, with 5000 feet per hectare, located 500 m high and planted in granite soils with sand lines. This year’s wine year in Dão was marked by drier winter than the previous year and rain that fell in early spring allowed some soil water reserves to support the plant during the dry spring and summer months. Being an early year in July, the vineyard was already in the painter phase, with harvesting beginning a week earlier than the previous year. After a careful selection in the vineyard, the grapes were vinified respecting all their nature. The fermentation took place in stainless steel mill with controlled temperature (28º to 31º C). Cuvaison for 18 days followed by a 14-month stage in allier oak casks.
