||| $99 | 6-Pack: Quinta Nova Pomares Tinto
With a history spanning over 200 years, Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo has been listed since the first demarcation of the Douro wine region, in 1756. The estate is now managed by Luisa Amorim, fourth generation, who has significantly augmented the family’s wine business. With deep cultural awareness, the wines have ancestral roots in Portugal’s finest wine regions, including unique places such as the Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo in the Douro and the Quinta da Taboadella in the Dão region.
The vineyard extends over 120 hectares, spanning a 1.5 km stretch on the right bank of the Douro River, with a 45 year average vine age. Using approximately 80 indigenous species, extracted from the original plantation of centuries-old vines that already existed on the estate, new cuttings and new vine plots have been created, currently distributed in 41 different plots, divided by their micro-terroir.
“This is a charming wine, in which the Douro is perceived in its fullness: red fruits that are combined with the toasted and sweet aromas of French oak barrels, we perceive a beautiful sensation of fruit in the flavour, which mixes in the succulent structure with round tannins and a fluid body. A long, tense and persistent finish.”
