Named for the Portugese word for 'texture,' Textura may be a young estate from one of Portugal's oldest winemaking regions, but they have quickly established themselves as the domaine to watch in the Dão. Founded in 2018, Textura organically farms 22 hectares of native Portuguese varieties plated on granitic soils at high elevations. Did I mention that the revolutionary Luis Seabra is making the wines? With all of these factors working together, how could these wines not be head-turners?

Pretexto Branco consists mostly of Encruzado and Bical, with a small percentage of Gouveio, Malvasia Fina and Cerceal Branco throw in the mix. All of the grapes were picked and pressed together, then fermented naturally in a combination of stainless steel tanks and cement vats, and was aged in oak, steel and cement for around 10 months.

This a beautiful offering that tastes too good to be called an 'entry level wine.' The nose is quite pretty and stoney, with delicate white floral and melon tones. On the palate, it's medium-bodied with well integrated acidity. Orchard fruits take centerstage to a backdrop of Atlantic minerals and pleasant creaminess. [Kirk Sutherland, February 2022]
