A hearty Portuguese red blend from one of our favorite Port producers. The wine has concentrated dark fruit flavors and strong minerality from the schist laden soils of the Douro valley. The blending of grapes is tradition in this region, with this made up of 30% Touriga Franca, 30% Touriga Nacional, 30% Tinta Roriz, 10% other native varieties.
From the mouth of the importer (Louis/Dressner):
"The Quinta is based in Pinhão, specifically in the subdistrict of Gontelho where the best Port vineyards may be found. The estate has been owned by the Roseira family since the end of the 19th century and is now managed by brother and sister, João Roseira, vineyard manager/winemaker, and Catherine Roseira, Chief Executive. The vineyards (terraced, very steep and hard-soiled) are worked in traditional methods."
