Bright lemon yellow. On the nose, aromas of pineapple and tropical fruit overlaid with green leafy notes. On the palate, tense yet ripe, with tropical fruit flavors, persistent minerality and bright, clean acidity. Finishes with excellent length and precision.
Morgado do Quintão, owned by Filipe Caldas de Vasconcellos, is an historic estate with thousand-year-old trees in DOC Lagoa located in Algarve, the southernmost region of Portugal. The property encompasses 60 hectares of vineyards which have been in his mother’s family for generations. Recognizing the potential of these old vines, Filipe recruited winemaker Joana Maçanita for her viticulture insight and the minimal interventionalist approach to winemaking that matches the Vasconcellos family’s philosophy. Joana Maçanita, born in Lisbon with family from Algarve, Azores and Alentejo, brings not only engineering and agronomy degrees but also an extensive knowledge of Portugal’s terroir and a commitment to the same mission as Filipe: to show the potential of indigenous grape varieties Crato Branco and Tinto Negra Mole.click here for more information.
