Quinta da Serradinha's 2013 Branco is a white wine crafted from grapes grown on old vines. The winemaking process involves separate vinification for each grape variety, Arinto and Fernão Pires. After destemming, the grapes undergo a three-day maceration period. This technique allows for gentle extraction of flavor and texture from the skins. Following maceration, the grapes are pressed and transferred to barrels for nine months of aging. Finally, the wine is blended in stainless steel tanks before bottling, without fining or filtration.

The resulting wine is described as elegant on the nose, with pronounced minerality and hints of stone fruit. The palate is full-bodied, offering a saline and mouthwatering character.

Quinta da Serradinha

Within the Leiria area of Portugal, Quinta da Serradinha whispers a tale of five generations. Here, António Marquês da Cruz, the current custodian, carries the torch of a family deeply rooted in viticulture. Since 1957, their vines have thrived under the influence of the Encostas de Aire DOC. The Atlantic whispers tales of cool mornings and high rainfall, balanced by the warmth of dry summers. These contrasting forces create a canvas of slow, patient maturation, allowing grapes to retain their aromatic complexity.

Sustainability is woven into the very fabric of Quinta da Serradinha. Long before organic practices became mainstream, in 1994, they embraced this philosophy. Their 6 hectares of vines flourish in clay-limestone soil, basking on south-facing slopes. Here, nature reigns supreme, with organic methods guiding every step of the harvest.

The heart of Quinta da Serradinha beats with a focus on indigenous grape varieties. Baga and Tinta Miúda, the quintessential reds of the region, find their place alongside Alfrocheiro, Touriga Nacional, and Castelão. For whites, Arinto and Fernão Pires offer their refreshing charm.

Discovered in 2005 by Goliardos, a renowned Portuguese wine collective, Quinta da Serradinha's wines stood out from the crowd. High acidity and firm tannins, characteristics that might raise eyebrows in some circles, became their signature. This unwavering commitment to natural expression resonated with Goliardos' philosophy, a perfect match for a family steeped in tradition.

Over the years, António has further refined his craft. The resulting wines are bottled only in select vintages, ensuring exceptional quality. Each sip is a journey of authenticity, a testament to the vinous spirit of the land. The unique profile reflects not just the meticulous techniques employed but also the warmth and generosity that embodies António himself. Quinta da Serradinha is more than a winery; it's a legacy in a bottle, a story whispered through generations, and a testament to the beauty of embracing nature's rhythm.
