O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2019

Citrus coloured, in a balanced year like 2018, D&Vcode white wine shows an exuberant floral aroma, with evident mineral notes. The wood and mineral aromas of Dão are in full harmony with a citric and floral profile of vinho verde. With great precision and good acidity in the mouth, it conveys a genuine freshness and balance, with a long and complex finish. The elegance and complexity characteristic of the Dão blend combined with the vibrant vivacity and personality of Vinho Verde makes a wine of full harmony! Both regions have great ageing potential and this wine promises great longevity.

Vinhos Ímperfeitos

Dão: In the past, winegrowers planted their vineyards with different varieties in order to obtain a balanced wine, only with their vineyards. Composed of more than 7 white grape varieties, the grapes responsible for this part of the blend are from century-old vineyards with the characteristics of the sub-region Terras de Senhorim.
The great challenge in these cases is to harvest the vine in its perfect maturation, taking into account that each variety has its own “time” of maturation.
The harvest was on September 15th, after a careful selection at the winery door the grapes were pressed with stalk very slowly and the must was delicately directed to a stainless steel vat. Controlling the temperature precisely this must fermented with its indigenous yeasts, thus preserving its natural aromas. Its prolonged ageing took place in used French oak barrels expressly chosen for this blend.
Vinho Verde: These grapes were harvested from an old vineyard in the sub-region of Sousa, a fresh region, with rich soils and granite, suitable for the style of wine we are looking for this blend. The date of harvest, the “Terroir” and the grape varieties being crucial for the success of this blend, we harvested the Avesso and Alvarinho varieties on different days. The grapes were carefully transported in 25 kg boxes to the winery, selected with the help of a selection table and sent to a press that delicately separated the pulp from the pips and skins. The must was carefully sent to a stainless steel vat where it slowly fermented with its indigenous yeasts, thus achieving the purest that nature gives us. This wine has been in contact with its “fine lees” since fermentation and has a unique character typical of the Avesso and Alvarinho grape varieties.
