Tasting Notes

Separated from the scorching Douro region by the Sera da Estrela mountains, the Dao is arguably Portugal's top region for balanced, mineral driven reds and whites that are marked both by fresh acidity and moderate alcohol. Encruzado is the region's premier white grape variety, and Quinta do Perdigao makes a fantastic version that is purely fruited, elegantly textured and capable of improving in bottle.

    If there is a single Portuguese region that consistently brings great value to the table, and is unfortunately as consistently overlooked, it would have to be the Dao. There are great wines at a variety of price points, though this under $20 white is one of my current favorites. It features Encruzado, the region's star grape and a variety that can bring to mind Chablis, Muscadet, Godello for the Iberian inclined imbibers out there. Citrus - particularly ripe pink grapefruit - on the nose, leads to a palate of pure fruit, with nice extract and phenolic qualities as well. Organically farmed, raised in neutral oaked, further cultivated by a sound system streaming in live opera from the Met for crying out softly...this is a wine well worth experiencing!
