Description

Details

Encruzado Quinta dos Roques, rich, oak aged, yet elegant white wine. Encruzado's naturally citrus elements are deliciously contrasted with the creamy oak and richness of the wine. Although not a certified organic winery, Quinta dos Roques approach to viticulture and wine making is a forward thinking and sustainable one. No chemical fertilisers are used in the vineyards and the wines are elaborated with minimum intervention save for the addition of selected yeast and a little sulphite. The purity and flavour tells all, the wines are excellent and very well priced. The Encruzado is a lovely alternative to a pricey Burgundy!

Luis and Luisa Lourenco run this family estate, often attributed with reviving the reputation of Encruzado in the region. They produce a wide array of meticulously assembled wines, offering both traditional blends, and varietal wines. The Touriga Nacional here is widely considered to be the finest in Portugal, and their Encruzado is also considered one of the country's leading dry white wines.
