Encruzado Barrique Do Portugal Quinta Dos Roques Encruzado Jahrgang Portugal Encruzado Die Dynamischen 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Extrem klares, leichtes Strohgelb. Sein elegantes Bukett nach Früchten mit einem leichten Rauchduft unterlegt, lässt sich am Gaumen sehr frisch und doch mit grosser Struktur und Komplexität erfahren. In seinem Abgang wirkt der Wein beträchtlich lange und verhalten süss.

Considered as one of the leaders of the region, Quinta dos Roques combines in a perfect way century old traditions with the most updated technologies, resulting in one of the finest "quinla" wines produced in Portugal being the pride of its creators. Since the first Roques, over more than a century ago, the vineyards and the wine are part of the everyday life of this family, though for a long time the production was only enough for the household consumption. At the beginning of the eighties, the traditional agriculture gave way to an ambitious project, aiming for the production of a superior quality D50 wine. Alter choosing the best places with granitic and, at times, schistous soils, in gentle southern facing slopes, the best traditional grape varieties of the region were planted following the most advanced techniques. A new winery was then built, combining the modem with the traditional, the science and technology with art. Side by side, in perfect symbiosis, electronic presses appeared alongside granite "lagares", stainless steel vats with k barrels, cold systems with underground cellars.

These Dao wines have progressed in leaps and bounds and show little in common with their ancestors of a couple of decades ago. This Quinta dos Roques is a case in point; the balance, elegance and hedonic pleasures of nose and mouthfeel is a far cry from the rusticity of the past. The Christmas Cake (what else?) scent, cherry pie flavours with melt-in-your-mouth unction and excellent pH balance make for a pleasing, satisfying meidum finish. Just a little bit more fruit core and this wine would scale the lofty heights of the 90-point club. No need to cellar this baby. 89 points.
