WINEMAKING:

Upon arrival at the Quinta dos Carvalhais winery, the grapes were de-stemmed and gently crushed. The must, protected from oxidation, was subjected to static decantation at low temperature for 24 hours, in order to reach the required level of clarity. The different varieties were vinified separately, in stainless steel tanks, at a controlled temperature of 16ºC. Fermentation lasted about 20 days. It was bottled after a maturation period of about four months in stainless steel tanks. After preparing the final blend, the wine underwent the necessary treatments and was bottled.

STORAGE AND SERVING ADVICE:

One of the main characteristics of the fine white wines from Dão is their longevity: although in the first two years this wine shows a remarkable freshness that will be appreciated by those who prefer young white wines, it has a very positive development.

 

PAIRING WITH FOOD:

Fresh, elegant and versatile, it is an excellent choice to accompany a wide variety of fish or seafood dishes, as well as salads, pasta and all types of poultry. However, it's also a nice appetizer.
