Description

Quinta dos Carvalhais is a beautiful estate in the Terras de Senhorim sub-region of the Dão and is one of the region's most respected producers. This 105-hectare estate, situated at an altitude of 465-500 metres above sea level, has 50 hectares under vine on predominantly granite soils. Warm days and cool nights at this altitude slow down the grape ripening process and result in wines with lovely depth yet vibrant fruit and a signature freshness. All of the vineyards are farmed sustainably and harvesting is carried out by hand. This is a benchmark example of Dão Touriga Nacional, showcasing all of the brooding black fruit and violet perfumes of this prized indigenous grape along with a subtle spiciness from 12 months ageing in French oak barrels. Ruby-red in colour with intense aromas of ripe black fruit, with floral and herbal notes and a subtle spiciness from the time in barrel. Elegant and balanced, with smooth tannins providing structure. A refreshing acidity carries the complex flavours through to the long finish. Decanter World Wine Awards 2021 - SILVER MEDAL
