Dão - Silgueiros
Minerality and wood give some complexity. Resinous plants, eucalyptus, mint, nuances of hazelnut and tamarillo. Fresh with well integrated acidity in a structured body of median volume.
Encruzado is an exclusive grape variety from the Dão region, is well balanced, aromatic and produces wines with a great longevity. The vines grow on slopes located between 350 and 400 meters of altitude. These vines fall within an integrated protection program and the application of herbicides is forbidden. Grape-picking is done by hand, when the ideal point of ripeness is reached, around mid September. The harvest is collected in small 10kg boxes.
