Soito Encruzado Reserve
This classic wine, obtained exclusively from the noblest white grape variety from DÃ£o â€“ Encruzado, shows the rich and typical character of the terroir from where the grape comes from. He fermentation develops with controlled temperature and it ages (partially) in new French oak barriques, withÂ battonnage. It has an exquisite structure, minerality and a long and complex finish.
Robert Parker – 90 Points – “…Concentrated, gripping on the finish and rather lively, this handles its wood well. The wood does give it a somewhat sterner rather than fruitier profile, and I liked the structure a bit better than the fruit. There might also be a reductive hint in that regard. Overall, this shows very nicely, however, serious and impressive. It still has a chance to improve and it seems very young. It does need a food pairing—this isn't a simple sipper."
“Soito Encruzado Reserva White 2017, straw yellow in color with slight greenish nuances, exhibited very rich floral notes (orange blossom and lemon), lemon leaf, lime, pear, mineral aromas of wet granite and softer vanilla notes, resulting well integrated wood. On the palate it is very fresh, mineral (almost salty), balanced and slightly unctuous. ”
