A very seductive and elegant wine, exhibiting white flowers, grapefruit, lime and a beautiful mineral touch. Very long on the palate with great texture and aftertaste.
A field blend of 60 years old vines including Viosinho, Rabigato, Côdega do Larinho, and Gouveio. Situated on north facing slopes at 600m altitude. Hand harvested grapes, de-stemmed, and fermented in French oak barrels (9% new) for four weeks. Aged in the same for 8 months with batonnage.
Jorge Serôdio Borges is the 5th generation of a long line of wine producers and winery owners. Therefore, in 2009 Sandra and Jorge acquired “Quinta da Manoella”, an estate with a history that dates back to 1838.
The Quinta da Manoella vineyards are over a hundred years old, bordered on both sides by young vineyards that are 30 years old, some even more recent. Quinta da Manoella Vinhas Velhas was immediately recognized as one of the greatest wines of Douro.
