Production information

Producer: Quinta do Vallado

This eighteenth-century Douro wine estate is actually one of the most modern-looking in Portugal. Although the team uses the traditional panoply of indigenous grapes, its methods are bang up to date and the results are nothing short of sensational.

Production note

The grapes from the old vineyards (over 80 years old) were vinified in stainless steel, temperature controlled, remontage vats, holding up to 5.000 kilos of grapes each. The chosen parcels of the 16 hectares of the old vineyards at Quinta do Vallado were vinified separately, the fermentation lasting an average of 8 to 20 days. The grapes from the younger vineyards of Sousao were foot trodden in lagares and fermented in the lagares for 6 days.
