Aníbal Coutinho will conduct the wine tasting, next 27th November, starting at 6.30pm, in Lisbon
Encruzado grape variety will be highlighted during the varietal wine tasting next 27th November at Sala Ogival, in Lisbon. The initiative, promoted by ViniPortugal with the support of Dão CVR, aims to highlight the potential of Encruzado, a grape variety increasingly popular which has produced unique and interesting wines. For the moment, this grape is restricted very much to the DOC Dão,, the Encruzado grape variety presents itself as one of the safe values of Portuguese winemaking and it is one of Portugal's absolutely top white grape varieties. The best examples have delicate aromas of roses and violets, light citrus notes, a touch of resin and, in certain conditions, intensely mineral notes. Amongst its virtues is the ability to maintain almost perfect balance between sugar and acidity, making serious, rich, structured wines with extraordinary ageing potential. It is used both as a single variety and as a star ingredient in many Dão blends. Wine tasting registration is required by e-mail provas.salalisboa@viniportugal.pt and has a cost of 5€. Other information can be requested to Joana Pires, by the same e-mail or phone 213420690.
