Quinta dos Carvalhais, 'Colheita Branco', 2018, Dão, Portugal


A bright yellow and ripe white wine. Full of tropical falvour, subtle brioche, and toasty oak. This for those that like they're white wines more full flavoured and rich, but with a exotic Portuguese twist. It's crisp, dry, and tightly built. Very pleasant and greatwith creamy vegetable or chicken dishes!

Quinta dos Carvalhais is a beautiful property in the Mangualde commune of the Dão region. Purchased in 1988 by the Guedes family, a huge amount of investment has gone into the estate, which combines the most up-to-date techniques with extensive experience of traditional winemaking practices, resulting in wines with great elegance and personality. 

Note: 'Colheita Branco' means Estate White, and is a term used for a blend of native white grapes from the estate.
