White dão, the new promise of Portugal
|Special blend of indigenous 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 starts juicy and pleasant and ends with a fragrant aftertaste. Excellent wine with salads, grilled fish or pasta dishes.
Paulo nunes from the Serra da Estrela region
One of Portugal's most classic wine regions has entered a new phase. Young winemakers have broken with the drying, mature and somewhat old-fashioned style of the previous generation. They now make elegant, world-class wines on the characteristic granite soils in the Dão. A good example is the small Casa da Passarella, where Paulo Nunes in the Serra da Estrela sub-region knows how to process the indigenous grapes into quality wine.
The A Descoberta white is made from malvasia, verdelho and encruzado grapes that soak for a few hours before fermentation. After this, the white dão ferments in steel tanks. Paulo Nunes then regularly stirs the tank so that the yeast cells come into optimal contact with the wine. This 'bâtonnage technique' provides a mild taste nuance that complements the freshness of the encruzado grape in particular.
The Descoberta (find) is a wonderful introduction to the new generation of white dão wines; made in a modern way, but while preserving the unique terroir in this region and grape expression.
Iberian white competes!
Fortunately, the time of heavy, unwieldy white wines from Spain and Portugal is long behind us. 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 from Casa da Passarella with its 100% autochthonous grape composition is of high quality. A special wine with a strong personality.
