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. Most recently, Quinta do Javali has dedicated itself to the practice of biodynamics and has thrown itself into this somewhat mystical and perhaps misunderstood discipline.
This wine is the first in what will become an annual artists' label series., introducing a new wine each year. This first year, it is an orange wine, almost entirely from Viosinho, and it is one of the better orange wines we have tasted recently from Portugal. Biodynamic grapes, taut, alive, with some tannins, lemon peel, nectarine, orange flowers, and more. A mouthwatering delight from this unique Douro producer.
