2018 Quinta da Falorca Encruzado Reserva Blanco Magnum
The Encruzado Reserva Quinta da Falorca consists for 95% of the most beautiful white grape from the Daô - the Encruzado. This grape has the ability to maintain an almost perfect balance of sugars and acidity. It produces dry, fruity and aromatic wines and is one of Portugal's top white grape varieties. This grape has an extraordinary aging potential and we see that with this white wine from Quinta da Falorca because this wine can remain in your cellar or wine fridge until 2033 without any problems. The wine has matured in new French oak and has a perfect alcohol percentage of 13%, which makes the wine elegant. The wine gets beautiful oxidative tones with ageing.
This is a fine Encruzado, persistent and focused, with good acidity and concentration. The oak here is supportive and not dominating so this also retains its purity. This Branco from Portugal has developed beautiful aromas of roses, violets, but also of lemon and minerality. The richness is impressive and due to the great acidity there is always a nice tension with a good spiciness. The Encruzado Reserva is an impressive white wine with a great price/quality ratio.
This is a unique magnum version in a beautiful gift box. 93/100 Parker
