(From 2009 Vintage) Poeira aims to be a balanced and elegant wine. Douro wines generally rely on their tannins, but Poeira relies on its acidity. A wine that is extremely drinkable and appealing when young but which at the same time has the capacity to develop. I want every wine to mirror the vines from which it is made, maintaining its character but reflecting the variations that occur in the vineyard from year to year. The Poeiras tell the story of my quinta. “It did not want to stay with the coarseness of its native soiland sought its true character in elegance”.
