Quinta Vale d. Maria Vinhas do Sabor Tinto, Douro Superior 2018
The history of Quinta Vale D. Maria winemaking began in 1996 in the hands of Cristiano van Zeller, when he bought the property from the family of his wife, Joana Lemos van Zeller. The winery’s main focus is on sustainability; adding biodiversity to the surrounding area, capturing rainwater for irrigation, harvesting grapes by hand and crushing them by foot. The Vinhas do Sabor is a blend of indigenous Portuguese grapes, vines being between 10 and 35 years in age. After fermentation the wine is aged for 21 months in nearly new French oak barrels. The Vinhas do Sabor is bold, but still balanced, bringing dark fruits together with clove spices and floral aromas to make a seriously delicious wine.
