This wine comes from a unique parcel of the Encruzado variety, located at 500 meters altitude on the right bank of the Dao river. The soils of granite origin but with quite o lot of clay that gives a special character to these grapes. This white wine is aged for two years before release, and will only be made in the best vintages. The first edition comes as a tribute to a great friend and winemaker: Joao Correa.
THE 2017 VINTAGE
It was a very dry year marked by an early harvest. The summer was quite long, dry and warm, however with some cool nights which allowed rippening to go on without interruptions and consequently the harvest was quite early. These grapes were harvested manually in early September and the result is a wine full of freshness, texture and minerality.
