Quinta do Javali is a small wine property with 18ha dedicated to vines. It sits on the left bank of the Douro river, in the parish of Nagozelo do Douro, a place with vineyard tradition since the beginning of the production of Port wine for export, in the late 17th, early 18th centuries.
The property is comprised of a small quay in the river, which was simultaneously used as a wharf for loading the typical rabelo boats; as well as a small rustic house (cottage), fully rebuilt, which displays an inscription found in the door threshold dating from 1839. The typical and old Douro terrace walls in the property are witness to the history of the vineyard.
The North - East exposure/orientation of the slope of the property, as well as the schistose soil with vertical diaclasites, which allow the vine roots to penetrate to unthinkable depths, with a consequent complexity of benefits for the vine, provide to Quinta do Javali with exceptional qualities for the production of the finest PORT and DOURO DOC wines.
QUINTA DO JAVALI CLOS BLUE CAPSULE |RED | 2017 | DOC DOURO
Wine created from the Biodynamic Viticulture Concept. Dark ruby color with violaceous halo. Nose that combines black stone fruit and bark notes. Evidence for the notes of black plums and very ripe black cherries. There are also suggestions of blackberries. The Blue Capsule results from a location more exposed to the sunset, which increases the polyphenolic richness of the grapes (tannins and anthocyanins), which thus “liberate” for the wine more color and a
superior structure. In the mouth, the mature notes of the black fruit appear and once again the “mineral nerve”, typical of the terroir of Fonte do Santo.
