Quinta Nova Vinha Centenária - Ref P28/P21

Quinta Nova Vinha Centenária - Ref P28/P21

The first study for monovarietal planting in the Douro region was conducted in Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo, between 1979 and 1981, in conjunction with the Portuguese Ministry of Agriculture, through the Centro de Estudos Vitivinícolas do Douro (Douro Winemaking Studies Centre). In the study, the best solar exposures were chosen in Quinta Nova to study the planting of three grape varieties: Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca.

The Parcela 28 (Plot), planted with Tinta Roriz, consists of 2650 vines, with a slope of 25% and an altitude between 205 and 210 metres. Tinta Roriz clearly demonstrates the challenge of wine and human persistence in preserving an ancient and authentic Douro. The austerity of the grape variety is noticeable in the palate, but at the same time, we are seduced by a contemporary sophistication that, allied to a centuries-old vineyard gives rise to a Referência (Reference) in the Portuguese Douro: a wine full of minerality, blue berries, rich in spicy notes, with a firm structure and a very narrow mouth. The high concentration, density and depth expresses well its origin.
