Minimum interference. Our wines are also made as naturally as possible. We do not inoculate for Fermentation or Malolactic, and as a consequence our wines take a little longer to develop. Maintaining low levels of Free Sulphur, our barrel-aged wines are racked for sediment and bottled unfiltered. Since 2000, we have gained a reputation for a bold style of winemaking. Our ancient vines, tiny yields and “organic” practices produce deeply structured, fruit driven red wines high in polyphenols. Naturally fermented and foot trodden, they are rich exemplars of the unique Douro heritage.
A veritable heavyweight among wines, it is a wine to lay down and keep. A purity of fruit and precocious with tannins, if you want to drink it now it's well worth decanting some time before you plan to drink. Made from our ancient vines, each vintage yields only 3,000 bottles.
Made from the 'younger' vines planted as recently as 1945! The wine is bottle aged at the Quinta for up to 6 years prior to release. Rich and elegant, we produce about 2,000 bottles of each vintage.
The most accessible of the Quinta's wines, drinking now, urgent, compelling and flamboyant. Blended partially from our new vines, it a spectacular mouthful of sunshine and spice.
