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.
JAVALI | QUINTA DOS LOBATOS | RED | 2017 | DOC DOURO
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.
Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca
Intense Red Color
Nose characterized by notes of ripe red fruits, with a strong presence of strawberry jam and raspberry.
Aged 6 months in used French oak barrels. The wine is not stabilized by cold and only has a slightly filtration.
The short aging in oak barrels was used only to adjust the aromatic component, being responsible for some spice hints. In the mouth, we highlight the fruity aromas, properly balanced by an elegant structure.
BBQ, Cured Beef Steaks, Mature Cheeses, Spicy Foods, Cold Cuts, Chorizo, Smoked Hams and Salmon and Tuna.
The year of 2017
A very hot and dry growing season led to an early harvest, but for wineries with old-vine vineyards that picked at the right time, the vintage yielded powerful and generous wines.
