Quinta do Sagrado 10year old Tawny

Producer

One of the most emblematic Quintas in the Douro, located near the mouth of the Pinhão River at the heart of the Alto Corgo and the Douro. It has belonged to the Calem family (now in its 5th and 6th generations) for about 150 years, and before that was owned by the A.A. Calem & Filho, Lda. company. When it started, there were neither trains nor tanker-trucks, so it was designed to receive the Port wines produced at the Quinta and at the Region's other landholdings, and from there transport them via barge (known as Barco Rebelo, owned by the Monteiro de Bitetos family at Alpendurada), to the main warehouses on Diogo Leite Avenue in Vila Nova de Gaia.

Vinification

Vinification takes place in stainless steel containers with 1 day of pre-fermentation and maceration and 2 days of fermentation. The Sagrado Port Collections 10 year old is a selection of old wines aged in oak barrels whose final lot represents an average ageing time of 10 years, giving it a smooth, very balanced texture and an intense aroma of dry fruit. It is a full-bodied wine presenting long-lasting aroma.

Tasting Notes

Ready to drink, it forms an excellent accompaniment for simple and classic desserts but it also can be enjoyed on its own, slightly chilled, as an aperitif.
