Herdade do Portocarro is a project that is based on a philosophy of production of finest wines in limited and exclusive quantities. These wines possess an intense and complex personality: they are tense and earthy, but also elegant and fresh. Located in the border between the beautiful Peninsula de Setubal and the intensely hot Alentejo plains, this 18 ha single vineyard has been planted on a hilltop facing South, 60 m above the river Sado. Both the rain’s draining and the sun exposure are excellent, it is surrounded by trees and benefits from the Atlantic Ocean’s cool influence.
The Alfaiate Branco is a single-vineyard blend of Sercial/Esgana Cão, Galego Dourado, Arinto and Antão Vaz.
Pineapple, followed by apple and a tremendous, refreshing acidity. A full and elegant wine with a clean mineral finish.
