Marques de Marialva Cuvee Brut

D. António Luís de Meneses-commander of the Portuguese troops during the vital restoration wars between 1640-1648- played a vital role in Portugal gaining Independence from Spain. To honor Meneses, the king of Portugal gave him the title ‘Marques de Marialva’, in recognition of his victories in battle. As a way to honor and recognize his important role in Portugal’s History, Adega de Cantanhede decided that our best still and sparkling wines from the Bairrada DOC should carry his name.

Tasting Notes A beautiful crystalline appearance with very fine bubbles that form a persistent and a generous train. The color is an intense lemon hue with golden tones. Aromas are complex with notes of dried fruit, brioche and toasted bread. The mouth reveals complexity with a distinct and captivating profile with pleasant volume on the palate and a remarkable freshness that gives it persistence and lenth in the finish.
