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.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2020

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.
