Description

Quinta dos Carvalhais Encruzado

Quinta dos Carvalhais Encruzado has a bright citrus yellow colour and a subtle flavour, characteristic of the Encruzado grape variety. Notes of minerals, white fruit such as melon and pear, floral shades and a refreshing plant-based touch stand out. It has a complex bouquet that marries exceptionally with the aroma of French oak acquired during 6 months in the barrel. It is fresh, balanced and harmonious in the mouth, its vibrant acidity combining well with touches of French oak to deliver a long and lingering finish.

Quinta dos Carvalhais is the flagship for Dão wine brands. Heir to ancient knowledge, it combines extensive experience with the most up-to-date techniques, creating wines of great elegance, with intensely delicate flavours and a unique personality.

This beautiful property, located in the commune of Mangualde, near Nelas and Alcafache, has now been enhanced with new vineyards bearing the finest regional grape varieties (Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Alfrocheiro, Jaen, Tinta Pinheira, Encruzado, Assario, Verdelho, Bical and Cerceal) and the construction of a modern winery.

With a total area of 105 hectares, of which 50 are vineyards, Quinta dos Carvalhais produces certain unique wines exclusively from its own grapes that honour the Dão region’s traditions and reputation. Such is the case for Quinta dos Carvalhais Único, Reserva, Colheita, Encruzado and other varietals, as well as Colheita Tardia and Espumante Reserva Rosé. Duque de Viseu white and red wines are produced using their own grapes and others purchased from local producers who work with the Sogrape Vinhos team to produce quality fruit.

Today, winemaker Beatriz Cabral de Almeida makes an increasingly impressive range of wines from estate vineyards, which are situated at an altitude of 465-500 metres above sea level.

Quinta dos Carvalhais is now a real benchmark in Portuguese winemaking, producing superior Dão wines with the supervision and passion of winemaker Manuel Vieira.

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon Quick View

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2012

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint.

Colour is vibrant lemon with green tinges. This multiple trophy winner from a stunning vintage shows classical Eden Valley lime juice with a hint of warm buttered toast. The palate is remarkably youthful with zesty acidity and a fine, mineral, dry finish. This is Eden Valley at its very best.

Chenin Blanc dominated dry and minerally with a tang of honeyed melon on the palate that leads to the crisp floral finish. The harvest is made entirely by hand yielding 60 hl/ha and 150kg of grapes produced 100 litres of juice in this vintage.
