Grao Vasco White

Quinta dos Carvalhais Grao Vasco White

Tasting Notes

A citrine-yellow colour with greenish tints. A wine of great aromatic intensity with components of pear, pineapple and citrus fruit, floral nuances and mineral notes. On the palate, it is very fresh and well-rounded, once again revealing floral notes. It is a very harmonious, elegant and balanced wine.


39% Encruzado, 37% Malvasia Fina, 16% Bical, 8% Gouveio

Technical Notes

After destemming, soft-crushing and pressing in pneumatic presses, the must was protected from oxidation by the use of inert gases and subject to low temperature static decanting for 24 hours, in order to achieve the desired level of clarity. The different grape varieties that formed the must were vinified separately in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures (16ºC) for around 15 days. Grão Vasco White is bottled shortly after a 4-month aging period in stainless steel tanks.

Food Pairing

Grão Vasco White 2016 is perfect as an aperitif, but also combines wonderfully with fish dishes, seafood, salads or light white meats
