O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2019

Mineral notes and fresh fruit combined with some citrus. Very soft and fresh texture in the mouth. Elegant, with the fruit and acidity well integrated, it ends long.

Wine promotions cannot be combined with other discounts or coupons. This wine comes from 45-year-old vineyards, about 5000 feet per hectare, located 500 m high and planted on granite soils with sand lines. The wine year of 2017 was marked by a dry winter, with levels of precipitation much lower than the average of the last 30 years. It was followed by a hot and dry spring, with heat waves that lasted until the beginning of the summer. This situation was maintained during the Summer which originated an early beginning of harvest, being particularly intense and of very short duration. After a few hours of skin contact on the day of harvest, very slow fermentation followed for two months. The batonage of 3 months caused a good increase of volume that combines quite well with its acidity and minerality.

Quinta da Pellada

The first historical references about Quinta da Pellada seem to be around 1570. The Dão wine region was established in 1908, framed by three mountain ranges – Buçaco, Caramulo and Serra da Estrela – and preserve from the Atlantic winds, the region as very special climatic conditions and this producer Alvaro Castro is one of the best Portuguese producers and unquestionable leader in Dão wine region. For the Quinta da Pellada come mainly grapes “field blend” from the old vines, but also the Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz, where it discovers the intense fruit and freshness from the farm grapes that give the name to this wine.
