Quinta do Javali Tawny Port

€8,00

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 tawny port is brown in color, which is typical of oxidative stress, and characteristic of this category of wines. The nose is marked by notes of dried fruit and toasted (walnuts, hazelnuts), exotic wood, and fruit in syrup. In the mouth, the structure is elegant and balanced, and to emphasize the freshness acid.

Grape varieties Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cão and Tinta Barroca. Manual harvest to 20 kg boxes. The grapes are fully stemmed before being trodden in winepresses. Aged at least 5 years in wood. The wine is not stabilized by cold and only has a light filtration.
