The Story

The only thing better than our beautiful vineyards is our beautiful vineyards bottled as wine. This is a wine made to show off our greatest treasure: Quinta dos Canais. We make this wine in exactly the same way as our ‘declared’ Vintage Port. ‘Declared’ Vintage Ports are made in a year when all other producers make a Vintage Port from a blend of their best properties and it is officially ‘declared’ by the whole region. In between these years, the best properties are usually so good that they deserve to be bottled independently.

 

Our vineyards are spread across the mountainous north bank of the Douro River. The bend in the river forms a natural amphitheatre with an ideal south-facing aspect. It’s a great view and it’s great for the vines too, which can ripen perfectly in the hot summer sun.

Our vineyards are planted with many different grape varieties. There are two that are particularly special though. The Touriga Nacional gives our wines their rich, ripe, red fruit flavours, minty aromas and peppery tannins; while, the Touriga Franca, adds more elegance and the floral dimension. There are a lot of old vines at Canais too, which give a depth and complexity to the wine that can only be found in wines made from beautifully mature vineyards.

Vintage 2019

2019 was a year to celebrate the Douro’s remarkably resilient grape varieties in an unusually dry year. Our ability to closely monitor their varying maturation cycles and adjust our picking schedule accordingly meant we were able to deliver the best expression of the different varieties.

Written Notes

This is a rich yet harmonious port with spiced dark fruit, chocolate and graphite undertones. Full-bodied and medium-sweet. Structured and well-balanced. A stream of finely polished and densely packed tannins runs all the way through to a lingering, velvety finish. Try from 2028.
