FONTES DA CUNHA Dão White Mondeco 2017 Score: 87 | $15

WS Review: Spicy and mouthwatering, this light-bodied white has a floral edge and mineral undertone to the lemon and crunchy peach flavors. Offers a crisp, herb-tinged finish. Encruzado and Gouveio. Drink now through 2020. 500 cases imported.—G.S.

Why It’s of Note: Located just south of the Douro, the Dão is a mountainous region with granite-packed vineyards located at altitudes up to 1,500 feet. While production here relies mostly on red wines, great-quality whites based on Encruzado, like this pick from Fontes da Cunha, are gaining recognition.
The wine’s good acidity and mineral details make it a good pairing for a variety of dishes, from salads to seafood.
