White dão, Portugal's new promise
|Special mix of native grapes|
|Original and striking|
|Great with salads, grilled fish or pasta dishes|
The Colheita Branco for your home
Freshly scented dry white wine from Portugal, with nuances of green apple and some flint. The taste is juicy and pleasant and ends with a fragrant aftertaste. Great wine with salads, grilled fish or pasta dishes.
Paulo nunes from the Serra da Estrela region
One of the most classic wine regions in Portugal has entered a new phase. Young winemakers have broken with the drying, ripe and somewhat old-fashioned style of the previous generation. They now make elegant world-class wines on the distinctive granite bottoms in the Dão. A good example is the small Casa da Passarella, where Paulo Nunes in the sub-region of Serra da Estrela manages to process the indigenous grapes into quality wine.
The A Descoberta white is made from malvasia, verdelho and encruzado grapes that - prior to fermentation - soak for a few hours in a cooled condition. After this, the white dão ferments in steel tanks. Paulo Nunes then stirs the tank regularly so that the yeast cells come into optimal contact with the wine. This 'bâtonnage technique' provides a mild flavor nuance that complements the freshness of the encruzado grape in particular.
The Descoberta (find) is a wonderful introduction to the new generation of white Daewines; made in a modern way, but retaining the unique terroir in this region and grape expression.
Iberian white competes!
Fortunately, the days of heavy, unwieldy white wines from Spain and Portugal are long gone. The new generation of white wines is in full competition with other suppliers. But modern wine technology alone is not enough for the distinction. The striking white dão of Casa da Passarella with its 100% autochthonous grape composition is of high quality. A special wine with a strong personality.
