Dão Branco 2022
Region: Dao, Portugal
Grapes: Malvasia-Fina, Encruzado, Bical, Cerceal-Branco, and many more local white varieties. 20 in total.
Style: White Wine
Truly delicious white made from over 20 local white varieties. This is made from a field blend of grapes grown in the village of Mouraz not far from the Caramulo mountains. They are co-harvested and co-vinified, and spend roughly 8 months aging in steel tanks. Deliciously textured, aromatic, inviting and moreish.
Made by the wonderful couple Sara Dionisio and Antonio Lopes Ribeiro, who started Casa de Mouraz in 2002 when they moved back from Lisbon to Antonio's native town of Mouraz in the Dão region. They aim to showcase their unique part of the world, and create wines that gently speak of their sandy granitic soils, their microclimate between two mountain ranges, and their unique collective energy.
