    Lagar de Darei Dão Branco '17


    Lagar de Darei Dão Branco '17

    We are so excited to introduce the new vintage of one of our favorite Portuguese white wines, Darei Branco! We believe that the Dão is a region of immense potential. Located south of the Douro, the Dão is truly a unique and diverse region. It is bordered on three sides by mountains: Serra da Estrella, Serra do Caramulo, and Serra da Nave. This protection agains cooling Atlantic wines, and warming northern winds, gives it a temperate climate. Couple that with elevation, granite soils, forests, and an extreme diurnal temperature shift. This creates captivating wines full richness, freshness and balance. Darei’s namesake is of the town in which is it located in, and it’s become quite the family affair since José Ruivo founded the winery. With a combination of purchased fruit and some estate fruit, they have always kept tradition in mind, which is why we love these benchmark examples of the Dão. The Branco is a blend of 70% Encruzado, 15% Bical and 15% Malvasia Fina. The wine has signature tropical fruit aromas like pineapple skin, hints of apricot and white peach, with a richness that comes about in a subtle creamy mouthfeel. The wine is cut by striking acidity, keeping it fresh and balanced.
