2014 is the first edition of the Conciso Branco, a fresh and elegant white wine from the Dão region which shows off the potential of its old vines and granite terroir. The grapes come from Quinta da Lomba, which has exceptionally old vineyards, with some vines being almost a century old. These sites are planted predominantly with Bical, Encruzado and Malvasia, among other indigenous grape varieties of the region.
The Conciso Branco 2014 displays a beautiful golden yellow hue. Its aromas are delicate and engaging, with a lovely harmony between white fruits, herbs and very subtle hints of dried fruit as well as light smoky notes from the barrels. This complex white wine unfurls in the glass, offering plenty of minerality and freshness. The palate offers a wonderfully full and slightly unctuous body which is beautifully counterbalanced by the wine’s mineral character and acidity. The finish is very long, with incredible depth and a final touch of wood.
