The entire vineyard reserved for Port wine has a letter A benefit with (the best rating) and was planted with the traditional Douro grape varieties
Touriga Nacional is a dark-skinned grape variety that is a key ingredient in both dry red wines and fortified wines (Port) with a wide presence in the Douro region. Displays bold dark-fruit flavors, commonly accompanied by hints of spice, violet and leather. Its firm tannins makes it relevant as a varietal wine.
Secondly, Touriga Franca is also one the traditional grape varieties from the Douro Region. More aromatic and lighter in body, it is slightly less concentrated and has higher yields than the flagship Portuguese variety. Touriga Franca is really high in tannins with an exquisite perfume of fresh, ripe red fruits, spices and flower.
Tinto Cão is a grape variety dating back to the region’s origins. Throughout the years, it has been proven that this variety is better suited to the region’s fronts with less sun exposure. The cooler climate allows the variety’s floral aromas to showcase. With lighter coloured wines, despite its dark skins, it has good levels of acidity and tannins.
These are all combined with a variety of old vines from Quinta da Boavista that come from its 10 hectares of vines with an average age over 80 years.
