Taboadella 1255 Villae Vinho Branco 2019

Dão, Northern Portugal, PortugalTaboadella is an exciting new Dão project from the Amorim family (of cork domination). The family is no stranger to winemaking, however, owing Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo in the Douro, as well as the large Aldea de Cima estate in the Alentejo, where they have been planting vines over the past few years. Villae Branco is a blend of encruzado, bical, and cercial, from Dão's granitic soils. This was whole-bunch-fermented and aged in large inox. Bright and citrus-driven, with crunchy lemon, lemon curd, and a cloud of lees to base, this has a lovely balance and depth while remaining fresh and friendly.Tasted: 16 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: Portugal 9.90 Portugal - Euros Producer: Taboadella 1255Blend: Encruzado - Bical - Cercial
