Cercial or Esgana Cão

The main qualities of the Cercial varieties are high production and good acidity.
This grape variety produces the famous fortified wine Sercial of Madeira, a dry wine that after ageing exhibits exceptional characteristics. Monovarietal wines from this grape variety are usually a little unbalanced, which is why Cercial is usually blended with other grape varieties such as Bical, Fernão Pires or Malvasia Fina. In these wines, the characteristics inherited from Cercial are the high acidity and delicate aromas.
