Quinta dos Roques is run by the lovely Luis Lourenco - one of our favourite winemakers - and is situated on the high altitude plateau of the Dao region. Encruzado is the jewel in the crown of Portuguese white grape varieties its wines are often described as being Burgundian in style. Quinta dos Roques Encruzado is certainly very elegant - like a warm vintage Chablis perhaps. It's got a soft, rounded texture which is kept in check by a very fresh mineral finish. Although it is delicious now it has the potential to age gracefully over the next 5-10 years.
Grape variety: Encruzado
