O Escanção - Verdelho 40

After the challenge of producing a blend together, Ricardo Diogo and Sérgio Marques decided to create a second edition of "O Escanção." They now propose this 40-year-old Verdelho, with the grape variety they consider to be the most challenging and their favorite. This small edition was made from some undated wines aged in casks in the cellars of Barbeito, but estimated to be approximately 50 years old. They added family wines from the late 19th century, which were stored in 12 and 18-liter demijohns.

This new wine presents itself with a dark amber color. It opens with a fresh and elegant bouquet with citrus flavors. Notes of apricot, toasted walnuts, and spices such as cloves, nutmeg, and raisins are detected. It has a good interplay between sweet, sour and acidity and a fresh and pleasant finish. Pairs perfectly with spicy cheeses.
