Winemaking is a family business. We sincerely hope to share our vision of the Dão, a region of excellent wines that only improve with time. But more than that: a beautiful place, with friendly people that sing on harvest day, following the tradition of many generations. It is also a region under transformation, with a growing number of producers making award winning, and internationally recognized wines. We are part of this process and believe in the result of the combination of tradition with technology. Juliana C. Kelman has both Brazilian and Portuguese citizenships. Her grandparents left Portugal for Brazil in the 1940s and 70+ years later the pendulum is now swinging back. She and her husband Rafael work hard to praise the great produce of this land. They enjoy doing every bit of it and welcome you to join the ride. Vinification: Hand harvested grapes are carried in small boxes into the near-by winery where they are sorted and then crushed into stainless steel tanks. After the must goes through a controlled cool temperature fermentation, it's moved into new French barrels. Once alcoholic fermentation is complete, the wine remains in the barrels, where frequent batonnage was used. The wine is aged for 10 months in new French barrels and one month in stainless steel tanks, with final aging in bottle for a minimum of 12 months before release. A small and natural sedimentation may occur. Varietal: Encruzado. Color: Light gold. Tasting Notes: Intense aromas of white fruits, toast, citrus, and tropical notes. Full-bodied wine; very fresh, with good acidity, minerality, and great finish. Pairing: Seafood, white meats and cheeses. Can also be drank alone, or with aperitifs. Aging Potential: This wine has a good aging potential, but can also be consumed immediately.
