Taboadella Reserva Jaen
Quinta Da Taboadella
Portugal - Dao - Dao

With Jaen we discover the Iberian Peninsula in Portugal (an identity associated with the Mencia grape variety). The breezy altitudes of the Dão region foster succulent, bluish fruits and white spices. Taboadella’s gentle slopes deliver this modernity. Jaen is one of the estate’s treasures, offering the delight of fruity and intense aromas, combined with allspice, placing this grape variety in another dimension. The wine’s beautiful structure, supported by soft, fine and coated tannins, is perfectly combined with its tense and delicate body.
