Producer António Madeira
Region Dão
Sub-Region Serra da Estrela
Grapes Field blend of 40 grape varieties (20% white grapes and 80% red grapes)
Soil Mix of old vineyards with 50 to 100 years old. As the whites ripen sooner than the reds it brings some richness and masks the tannins, so it is drinkable sooner than the reds. In the past, people wanted it sooner which is why palhete was such a popular style.
Winemaking Vinified the same way as reds, inspired by Henri Jayer. 100% destemmed and pre-ferment cold maceration at 15ºC. Remains macerating for four or five days, starts to ferment with Indigenous yeasts, then cut cooling system.
15 days of skin contact (red and hite grapes) until the end of alcoholic fermentation. Then 8 months ageing in stainless steel until bottling. No fining, in order to not lose its beautiful mouth.
Aging 8 months in stainless steel.
Capacity 750 ml
Volume Alcohol by Volume: 12%
Temperature 14ºC - 16ºC
Harmonizations Oven-roasted lamb, oven-roasted pork shank and codfish with cornbread.

Since 2010 António Madeira, a Portuguese-descendant Frenchman with family roots in Dão, Serra da Estrela, has been researching and growing old vines located in special places. With passion, dedication and precision, applying methods that are respectful for the life of the soil and that facilitate the expression of the terroir in the wines. It does not use herbicides and works the soils manually with hoes and the help of a horse.
The philosophy of winemaking is focused on the search for expression of the terroir of the Serra da Estrela, using no oenological product other than sulphurous.
