Wine Description

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 eleganceā€.

Tasting Note

deep vibrant purple / ruby colour. dark spice and raisin/ dark fruits aromas, brooding. medium body, initially dry but with dark red cherry / fruits, pepper, alcohol warmth slightly noticeable but well integrated with a hint of vanilla and well balanced tannins and fabulous length.
