Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Its deep straw color announces a nose with a full bouquet and aromas of dry hazelnuts and nuts. The palate is full-bodied, big, round, bold and long with spicy notes. This Port is both suave and full-bodied.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation
Red and whites, Ports come in different ranges depending on the nature of their blend and age.
- Terroir: Spread across 40000 hectares, the vineyards lay on both banks of the Douro river which crosses the country east to west up to the city of Porto. Located on hillsides , the vineyards lay on granitic soils.
- Viticulture: The main grape varieties are the Malvasia Fina, the Viosinho, the Donzelinho and the Gouveio.
- Vinification: An adjunction of brandy aims at stopping the natural fermentation and preserving the sugars. Ruby ports are often made of a young ports’ blend. They age for 2 to 3 years in barrels.
