Quinta Nova's award-winning winemaking team produces some of the most premium examples of Portuguese wines that have helped highlight Douro as a world-class, classic wine region worth visiting and tasting.
This three pack includes two reds and one Port:
2018 Quinta Nova Grainha Red: A more sophisticated and rich, but very well-balanced expression of Douro's fuller-bodied wines and warrants a sturdy meal or assortment of cheeses! Made from a complex blend of hand-harvested native Douro varietals and aged for 14 months in American and French oak barrels. The dark ruby robe of this wine speak to its deep, complex and seductive, yet elegant aromas that combine ripe plums and blackberries with wet, schist rock and Douro's iconic cistus flower nuances. It's mouthfeel is voluminous and balanced, with some tannic grip. Varietals: Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional.
2019 Quinta Nova Reserva Terroir Blend: Douro's native grape varietals are hand-harvested and perfectly blended into a classic Douro style that's a serious, pure and beautiful expression of this classic region, and a crowd-pleaser. Of an intense ruby or almost purple color, this wine reminds us of Douro's dark schist rock soils, which express on the nose alongside seductive and succulent lilac, iris and violet flowers, some nutmeg, clove and black pepper spice and ripe, wild black fruits. It is lively, yet soft on the mouth, showcasing wild berries and black cherry amidst fresh, wet leaves and stones. Varietals: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Touriga Franca
Quinta Nova 2017 Vintage Port: Vintage Ports only make up 2% of all Port production in Douro Valley. They are singular examples of exceptional harvests and this one comes from a so-called “harvest of the century”. It is concentrated, rich, seductive and can be enjoyed in its youth or aged to enjoy decades from now. Of an intense, deep and almost impenetrable ruby color, this Vintage explodes with ripe, red and black fruit, licorice and graphite on the nose and richness and power in the mouth, held up by fine and concentrated tannins that sit on the mouth for a long time, asking for another sip and bite of cheese or chocolate. Varietals: Centenary vines compose of 30+ native grape varieties.
