In 1877 D. Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, already owner of the largest agricultural heritage of the Douro, bought in a public auction 300 hectares of virgin land to the VN chamber of Foz Côa. Her dream was to build from scratch a model exploration, materializing in her all the vast experience accumulated throughout her life as a businesswoman from Douro.More about the Winery
The 2018 Tinto is a 50/45 blend of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, with dollops of Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca filling out the blend, all aged for 16 months in 50% new and 50% second use French oak. It comes in at 14.3% alcohol. Creamier and more sensual than the Meandro this issue, this mostly shows off its oak right now. That will get better as this ages and pulls in the wood. Even now, though, it drinks fairly well. The tannins are ripe, although this does show more power with extended aeration. It tastes great and retains the elegance for which this bottling is famed. It should age well and it should improve more. I do think it is a step or two behind the 2017, though, granting that they were not both here together.View more
