This wine expresses well the character of Dão's white wines, created in Quinta da Leira Silgueiros in the center of Dão. It has a very bright citrus color with greenish highlights. It expresses very elegant aromatic notes of outstanding fineness where the orange blossom, lime blossom and soft lemonade flanked by fresh citrus nuances are revealed. In the mouth it shows a well structured and crispy acidity, with good elegance and refinement. It reveals a very fresh and mineral profile with a long and persistent finish, according to its tradition. It should be served at the temperature of 12 º to accompany plates of light dishes or simply in good fraternization.

Vinha Paz is a story of five generations, to whom the wine and the Terras do Dão flow in the veins. It is a story about wines that transcend time, made in Dão’s century-old mills, and that carry the serene austerity of Dão’s landscapes. The success of these wines, the result of a love and dedication to the earth, is present in the various awards attributed to this wine.
