Mundus Vini Gold Medal (2017)

Caminhos Cruzados was born through the initiative and will of Paulo Santos, a native of Nelas, who, determined to return to his origins to invest in the world of wine, decided to transform an old agricultural company into a modern wine producing and bottling company. The company's philosophy is based on the production of quality wines, with an aspect of tradition combined with modernism and constant differentiation that the market demands. Its wines are made from grapes produced in-house and from selected producers, recognized for their quality and grape variety excellence, all in the Dão region. Caminhos Cruzados is the result of the union of ideas and projects, and promises to help put the name of Nelas back on the map as a land of choice wines.

Vinification: Manual harvesting in 15kg boxes. Destemmed grapes, direct pressing in a pneumatic press and cold static decantation. Full fermentation in French oak barrels. Internship for 9 months with “bâtonagge”. Traffic jam in November 2016.

Tasting Notes: The great white variety of Dão, here with part of the batch fermented in French oak barrels. Great freshness and minerality combined with an enormous capacity for positive evolution in the bottle.
