Bold and richly textured from five months of lees aging and time in French oak, this is a serious expression of 100% Encruzado from one of the Dão region’s most highly respected certified organic producers. While commonly found in blends, as proven by Quinta do Perdigão, Portugal’s aromatically intense and high acid indigenous white grape has great potential to render star quality varietal wines. Here, chalky minerality and nervy acidity, reminiscent of age-worthy white Burgundy, bring balance and focus while a lively palate of lemon curd and fresh herbs make this wine an excellent companion for hearty fish stews and rich flavorful pork dishes.

It is a treat to work with the wines of Quinta do Perdigao in the Dao, whose certified organic vineyards and sensitive winemaking shine across grape variety and vintage. Their profound white Encruzado and red Alfrocheiro are staples here, and the 2015 vintage of their exotic, age-worthy rose has just arrived. 40% Tinta Roriz, 35% Jaen, 15% Touriga Nacional, and 10% Alfrocheiro. Aromas of ripe raspberry, hibiscus, passion fruit, and oregano, with full-flavored, floral palate of wild cherry, spicy raspberry, red currants and rose, blood orange, and soft earth. Delicious all year round with grilled sausage, sushi, and complex, spicy fare. Ariana Rolich
