Dão - Silgueiros
Wine with character, very complex, with tones of vegetables, mint, green apple and tamarillo. Structured, mineral, with medium volume, fresh and balanced acidity. The time in the bottle will be critical to its full final pitch
The Encruzado variety is unique to the Dao region: it is quite balanced, aromatic and gives the wines a great longevity. The vines grow on the slopes located between 350 and 400 meters. The vineyard is grown in an integrated protection program: the use of herbicides is forbidden. Infestation control is carried out through soil movement. Grape-picking is done by hand, caste by caste, when the ideal point of ripeness is reached, normally in the second fortnight of September. The harvest is collected in small 10kg boxes
