Bold and richly textured from five months of lees aging and time in French oak, this is a serious expression of 100% Encruzado from one of the Dão region’s most highly respected certified organic producers. While commonly found in blends, as proven by Quinta do Perdigão, Portugal’s aromatically intense and high acid indigenous white grape has great potential to render star quality varietal wines. Here, chalky minerality and nervy acidity, reminiscent of age-worthy white Burgundy, bring balance and focus while a lively palate of lemon curd and fresh herbs make this wine an excellent companion for hearty fish stews and rich flavorful pork dishes.

It is a treat to work with the wines of Quinta do Perdigao in the Dao, whose certified organic vineyards and sensitive winemaking shine across grape variety and vintage. Their profound white Encruzado and red Alfrocheiro are staples here, and the 2015 vintage of their exotic, age-worthy rose has just arrived. 40% Tinta Roriz, 35% Jaen, 15% Touriga Nacional, and 10% Alfrocheiro. Aromas of ripe raspberry, hibiscus, passion fruit, and oregano, with full-flavored, floral palate of wild cherry, spicy raspberry, red currants and rose, blood orange, and soft earth. Delicious all year round with grilled sausage, sushi, and complex, spicy fare. Ariana Rolich
We love the rich, feral Portuguese variety Baga - the great red grape of the Bairrada DOC, which abuts Portugal's Dão region and enjoys a mild, maritime climate. Sidónio de Sousa's Baga is as good as it gets, from 90-year-old vines, fermented whole-cluster and raised for 12 months in ancient Portuguese oak. Pepper and rose petals on the nose, with wild flavors of black currant, red currant, oregano, and rye combine with pine needles, purple flowers, and funky damp earth. It's hard not to dream of roasted or grilled meat with this wine! Ariana Rolich
