"Elegant and charming, the wine shows white flesh stone fruit, lemon zest, apple and subtle oatmeal characters on the nose. The palate delivers lovely weight and rounded mouthfeel backed by fine texture and bright acidity, leading to a lingering refreshing finish. At its best: now to 2022."

We are proud to offer an incredible line up of Portugese wines from the Dão region. The Quinta Do Correio wines are from the Quinta Dos Roques estate, a key player here.

Quinta Dos Roques is one of the leading estates in the Dão. Based in Abrunhosa do Mato.  Its history dates back to the 19th century and in the last 15years quality has excelled gain deserved international acclaim. Manuel Lopes de Oliveira and his son-in-law Luis Lourenço oversee the winery and stunning vineyards, whilst winemaking is led by talented Jorge Brites and Professor Virgilio Loureiro.

The vineyards now extend to 40 hectares, spread across twelve different sites and a wide variety of micro climates and soil types. Vineyards are increasingly batch-planted, being of Touriga Naçional, Tinto Cão and Encruzado. The red wines are characterised by their depth of colour, purity of fruit, and above all, their exquisite balance and harmony. The whites displaying freshness and depth of minerality and intesity of fruit.

35% Malvasia, 30% Bical, 25% Cercial, 10% Encruzado. Correio, translates "Post" and are named after the postman who once owned the site. He delivered his wine locally with the post.

On the nose fine, citrus aromas, green apple, pine nuts and chalky minerality. Flavours of green apple, peach and minerality. light yet full flavoured and very attractive. 

Try this with seafood and antipasto all summer long. Superb!
