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 LBV (Late Bottle Vintage) port is color-filled and this density extends all of the way to the edge of the wine. The nose is dominated by notes of ripe black fruits, jams associated with prunes and figs, and hints of balsamic. In the mouth, are confirmed notes of ripe black fruit. The structure is striking, with a strong presence, very similar to the wine category Vintage.
Grape varieties are Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cão and Sousão. Manual harvest to 20 kg boxes. The grapes are partially stripped before being trodden in winepresses. Aged at least 2 years in wood. The wine is not stabilized by cold and only has a light filtration.
