Voluptuous and rich, yet still remarkably fresh, 'Quinta da Pellada Casa' is made from a field blend of indigenous Portuguese varieties, as well as portions of Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, and Tinta-Roriz from selected vineyards.

It is brimming with wonderful blackberry and plum aromatics with a delicious hint of meatiness. The palate is concentrated and fresh with ripe black cherry fruit with some herbal notes. With 16 months in barrel and additional maturation in bottle, this wine reveals the complexity and elegance that comes with time.

 

About Alvaro Castro

Today the Dão is probably the best place in Portugal to find fresh, aromatic styles of wine made from one of the many interesting indigenous grape varieties Portugal has to offer. And Alvaro Castro is arguably the best winemaker in the region. With white varieties such as Encruzado, Cerceal Branco and Bical and reds such as Touriga Nacional and Roriz, Alfrocheiro, Jaen, Tinta Amarela and Tinta Cão, it’s not surprising that Alvaro makes many different wines. What links them is his of traditional and modern techniques, creating wines of balance and integrity.
