Overview: From field blends (18+ indigenous varietals) dominated by Touriga Nacional, Quinta do Tedo Vintage’s vineyards average 40+ years and Quinta do Tedo Savedra’s Vintage, our oldest and most prestigious parcel, averages 60+ years. A Vintage Porto can be enjoyed immediately, but promises a greater evolution of flavor and complexity if aged in the bottle, and the aging potential is for decades, if you can resist!

Aging: 2 years in large neutral French oak tanks.
Grapes: Touriga Nacional and the oldest vineyards (+40 years old).
