Branco Especial ’18 by Morgado do Quintão, Algarve

Branco Especial ’18 is a dry white wine made by Morgado do Quintão, a local winery in the Algarve region of Portugal.

Morgado do Quintão is a family-owned, organic vineyard. Their wines embrace ancient grape varietals and heritage winemaking methods, exhibiting and elevating the quality and character of Algarve terroir. They bring these wines to the table with attention to low-intervention, natural winemaking processes.

This pale yellow colored white wine was made from Crato Branco, a local grape variety.

On the nose, fairly tropical and floral aromas, with hints of citrus. On the palate, a bottle of balanced wine with fresh minerality and a touch of oak.

An easy-drinking wine for a warm summer with an 11% alcohol level.

This Algarve wine was made from vines that had been abandoned and rediscovered living in symbiosis with an olive grove. Harvested by hand and the whole bunch pressed in the reductive atmosphere. Fermented at 11ºC temperature.

The drink perfectly goes well with the local seafood, oyster or shellfish.

And I have to mention that this great white wine was the winner of “Revistas dos Vinhos’ Best Portuguese Wines 2019” – Algarve.

Worth to taste this wine!
