A Descoberta Branco, Casa da Passarella
Portugal - 2018
Tasting Note: Great elegance with a firm freshness. Citrus fruits with underlying hints of rosemary and sage, with stone fruit and crushed apples. Very elegant, crisp and refreshing and a nice texture as well.
Food Matching: A versatile wine that can go with salads, fish and white meat.
Vineyard: Vines are planted on poor granitic soil in the sub-region of Serra de Estrela, in the green and mountainous Dão region or Northern Portugal. The climate is dry continental.
Vinification: This wine is a blend of the Encruzado, Malvasia and Verdelho grapes which are hand-picked once ripe, and partially vinified together. After a slight skin contact, the grapes and very lightly pressed and left to settle. The fermentation is in stainless steel with controlled temperature, where it then ages on the lees for 6 months to add flavour and texture. It also stabilises the wine, allowing minimal intervention.
Grapes: Malvasia Fina 40%; Grape Encruzado 40%; Grape Verdelho 20%
