Following the philosophy of the Meia Encosta brand, this elegant white wine reveals the unique characteristics of Dão white wines. In this region’s poor granitic soil, protected by the influence of the Atlantic by a barrier of mountains, the vineyards ripen grapes that maintain a relatively high natural acidity that transmits unique characteristics, such as elegance and complexity, which are fully demonstrated by this white wine.

Clear, pale yellow. Fruity, elegant and mineral. It is voluminous in the mouth, with a marked fruity character, in perfect balance with the acidity that gives it the typical flavor and freshness of a Dão wine.
