Quinta da Boavista ‘Tretas’ 2018



Vinification: Hand-harvested Jaen (70%) and Touriga Nacional (30%) from high-altitude organic vineyards on granite, schist and clayey shale soils. Destemmed, only 4 days on skins, spontaneous co-fermentation without temperature control. Stays in tank on the lees for 6 months, bottled unfined and unfiltered with a bit of added sulphites.

Character: Light and energetic like an untamed Beaujolais, but still undeniably Dão. Very yeasty-smoky nose at first, giving way to layers of red berries, roses and tea with air. Crunchy and mineral on the palate, ripe but low-alcohol (11%), fresh acidity and a touch of lively CO2 spritz. This type of wine at this type of price-point is a rare sight nowadays.
