Named after the Duke of Viseu, a title first held by Prince Henry the Navigator of Portugal, these modern wines are made at the Quinta dos Carvalhais winery by Beatriz Cabral de Almeida. A blend of estate-grown fruit from Quinta dos Carvalhais and fruit bought in from trusted growers, the wines are vibrant and fruit forward and showcase the signature freshness of the Dão region.
A blend of typical Dão varieties, namely Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Alfrocheiro Preto originating from the Quinta dos Carvalhais.
2019 was an unusually dry vintage in the Dão. Spring was slightly warmer than normal, which brought forward bud burst and flowering occurred at the end of May. Warm summer days followed by the cool nights typical of the region allowed the grapes to undergo a slow and steady ripening process, accumulating good intensity of flavour whilst retaining a refreshing natural acidity. Harvest took place in September and October and the grapes were of excellent quality.
