Quinta da Mariposa Dao Branco, Portugal
Grapes: Malvasia Fina 40%, Cerceal Branco 30%, Encruzado 30%
Region: Dão, Portugal
Winemaking: Produced with respect for the natural characteristics of the grapes, intervening as little as possible to obtain quality over quantity and wines that are true to their origins and terroir. The grapes were harvested manually into 20kg boxes, cooled before the crushing and immediately pressed. The resulting juice decanted in stainless steel vats, and then fermented in other stainless steel vat under temperature control with indigenous yeasts.
Tasting notes: This lemon coloured wine has a nose of flora and citrus fruits. Lovely acidity on the palate combined with the characteristic minerality found in the Dão region, with a long and elegant finish.
