WINEMAKER NOTES

Poças is a 100% Portuguese wine company founded in 1918 by Manoel D. Poças Júnior, producing Port and Douro DOC wines.

With more than 100 years of life, the company is currently in the hands of the 4th generation (Maria Manuel Maia, Paulo Pintão, Pedro Pintão, Jorge Manuel Pintão).

Poças has been one of the pioneer companies to produce Douro DOC wines, proving its creativity and boldness since then.

TASTING NOTES

Tawny color. Woody bouquet of dried fruits and raisins. Fruity and well matched with the wood. Full-bodied, irresistible and complex, with a long-lasting finish of dried plums.

This Port is a result from a combination of different wines, from various harvests throughout the years, matured in wood, equaling an average age of 10 years.

Serving Tips: Ideal as a dessert or convivial wine, it should be served at 17°C/63°F or slightly chilled. Splendid with cheeses, pastry, sweets, nuts, light puddings and cakes. Ready to drink when bottled.
