We have a long history with Fazenda Samambaia. As one of the core members of Santo Antonio Estates we have been visiting this farm for over 6 years. It is both gorgeously kept and historic. Owned by the Cambraias's since the 19th century, it's executive operator is now Henrique Cambraia.
Although, Samambaia has numerous varietals planted, the Yellow Tapazio this year was a must have. It absolutely shined on the cupping table as it was quite sweet and possessed a luscious, creamy body. The Yellow Tapazio Varietal was developed in Brazil at the Agronomic Institute of Campinas. It is a cross of the Mundo Novo and Red Catuai and then backcrossed with the catuai again.
Toffee and dark honey flavours with a smooth lasting finish.
