Borrado de Moscas
Freshness from the Dão
Borrado de Moscas is the name given to the Portuguese white wine variety Bical in the Dão region. It is mainly cultivated in the Bairrada and Dão regions. Its name translates as "flyspeck" and refers to the many small dots on the skin of the berries. The wine of this grape variety has a fresh acidity and is mostly used for cuvees, but is also used as a single variety. It is also suitable for sparkling wine production. It produces fresh and ageable white wines with a clear aroma reminiscent of yellow, tropical fruits and peaches. With age, it develops aromas reminiscent of Riesling.
