2010 Quinta dos Roques Encruzado Dao

SKU #1086754

Encruzado is generally viewed as the most serious white grape variety in the Dao, certainly the variety that is best suited to cellaring. Wonderfully bright, intense fruit shares the stage with minerality in a delicious expression which should further develop over the next several years. For some perspective on ageability, I really enjoyed the 2004 vintage with a few colleagues last summer. (Joe Manekin, K&L Portuguese wine buyer)

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
