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.
Intense red color. Nose characterized by notes of ripe red fruits, with a strong presence of strawberry jam and raspberry. The short aging in oak barrels was used only to adjust the aromatic component, being responsible for some spice hints. In the mouth, we highlight the fruity aromas, properly balanced by an elegant structure.
Manual harvest. The grapes are fully stemmed before being trodden by foot in lagar. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in stainless steel. Aged 6 months in used French oak barrels. The wine is not stabilized by cold and only has a slight filtration.
Region, Sub-region and/or DOC: Douro
Grape Varieties: Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca
Alcohol by volume: 13.5%
