45% Encruzado , 28% Gouveio (Verdelho), 14% Other white varieties, 13% Semillon
A hugely complex white made from a blend of wines from seven different vintages aged in barrel for many years in the medieval cellar at the Quinta dos Carvalhais estate.
Bright golden in colour, the Branco Especial has huge intensity and complexity of aroma on the nose with well-defined aromas of apple, dried fruits and honey married with brioche and warm spicy notes. The wine is rich with extraordinary body on the palate balanced by a lively acidity. An elegant, complex and very sophisticated white wine.
