Intro: The Clos line at Quinta do Javali demonstrates the purity, respect and uniqueness of the expression of the Fonte do Santo terroir, in Ervedosa do Douro, from the vineyard to the glass. Our wine community is loving this wine many calling it a juicy ‘Pinot Noir’ style wine a rare profile for Douro wines.

Region: Douro (D.O.C)

Winery: Quinta do Javali  Vineyard: Clos Fonte do Santo (‘Stone’)

Grapes: 30+ Varietals from old vines of at least 65 years of age

Aging: 12 months in old French Oak barrels

Tasting Notes: Ruby colour, like cap coloration. Nose with strong fruity expression of ripe red fruits, such as strawberries, blackberries and red plums. The location of the vines that originate the Red Capsule is responsible for a slightly longer maturation, causing the sensorial perception of more matured red fruits, with some very balanced structure. The minerality conferred by the terroir of Fonte do Santo allows an elegant tasting.
