Founded in 1756 by the King of Portugal, this company represents some of the finest Quintas in the Douro. Old but not out of touch, they have been able to preserve and honour the traditional winemaking while investing in the future with constant modernisation and experimentation in their vineyards.

Rich, lightly perfumed, raspberry aroma. On the mouth; smooth, silky, deliciously fresh sweet raspberry fruit flavours. Lovely quality and intensity of fruit. An attractive very fresh well balanced wine.
Serve with blue cheese, mature cheddar, nuts, and chocolate desserts.
Wine Spectator 89 Points
Rich, ripe and spicy, with expansive flavors, robust structure, plenty of g rip and a lingering finish of vanilla, caramel and plum. A lively wine with a lot of verve. 89 Points.
