Quinta Da Taboadella
Portugal - Dao - Dao

Encruzado, also known as Salgueirinho, is an endemic grape variety from the Dão region that is cultivated in the sheltered highlands of Taboadella’s vineyard, in granitic soils that have metamorphosed over hundreds of thousands of years. The delicate cultivation of the Encruzado vines requires increased attention during the growing season, delivering tremendous rewards. The wine is firm and exuberant, with a silky texture, linear structure and notable depth. It is a wine of the present and future.
