As part of our mission to honour biodiversity, we have been recovering various old white grape vineyards in Dão, going beyond than just Encruzado – the predominant variety of the region. The Rótulo Branco is a blend of almost extinct varieties such as Borrado das Moscas, Rabo de Ovelha and Cercial, among others. Without any influence from oak, we have created a delicate, light and well-balanced wine which reflects the granitic soils that are so typical of this region.

The 2020 vintage experienced a long, harsh winter with relatively high rainfall. An almost inexistent spring was followed by a mild summer with a few days of intense heat. These conditions made it quite difficult to control disease and ripeness in the grapes.
Once the fruit reached our desired level of ripeness, the harvest began, spanning from 25 August to 24 September. It was a challenging year, but one that gave us wines with beautiful acidity and excellent ageing potential. The Rótulo Branco was fermented normally, without the use of wood.

With its very pale lemon colour, the Rótulo Branco 2020 presents crisp aromas: white blossoms mingle with notes reminiscent of the wine’s terroir. The palate offers good body, a silky texture and a citrusy acidity providing a good backbone. Fruity notes and hints of fresh herbs accompany its long finish. This is a wine which offers great drinking pleasure for many different occasions!
