What am I: Quinta do Javali is a small property of about 18 hectares. It is located along the left bank of the Douro River in the parish of Nagoselo do Douro - São João da Pesqueira, in a place with a history of wine production as old as the region itself.
This white wine is golden in color, as a result of the maceration process. It has a strong aromatic intensity, with notes of the fruit of very mature quince, amplified by the skin maceration. Highlights include notes of caramelized orange peel, crystallized honey, dried fruits, and slightly earthy and resinous suggestions. To support this aromatic richness of fruit and terroir of excellence, there are harmonious sweet notes from the barrel.
In the mouth, it combines a remarkable acidic freshness with mature tannins from whole bunch maceration. The grapes are not stemmed before being trodden by foot in lagar. Fermentation takes place in the lagar and is finished in used French oak barrels. Aged 12 months with bâtonnage. The wine is not stabilized by cold and only has a light filtration.
