Quinta da Boavista


Quinta da Boavista



The Reserva is the "backbone" of the Quinta da Boavista’s portfolio and is the result of a batch made with grapes from a blend of both old and younger vines. Like the other wines from Quinta da Boavista, this wine is aged in French Oak barrels, followed by at least another year in bottle.

Grape Varieties: 25% Touriga Nacional, 25% Touriga Franca, 25% Tinto Cão and 25% Vinhas Velhas (+80 years)

Tasting Notes: Elegant and refined, this Reserva shows a ruby colour and a bouquet of spice and red fruit aromas with floral notes that build up in the glass. On the palate, its freshness expands, enhancing the fruit flavours and smooth but firm tannins, which confer great volume. A wine that is graceful, with plenty of sophistication.

Vinification: To ensure the prevalence of the variety’s characteristics and the full control of the process, at Quinta da Boavista we use manual harvesting and manual grape sorting processes, followed by a gentle berry de-stalk and crush. As fermentation reservoirs we have the traditional granite wine presses with foot treading, stainless steel fermentation vats and, for small batches, PVC food containers or fermentation in new 500 litre French wooden barrels. Each of these types of fermentation gives the wine a unique style and personality. After aging in 500 liter barrels for 15 to 20 months we create the Reserva blend. All our wines are sealed under natural cork. This wine is not filtered or cold-stabilized and that is why it can produce a sediment with age.

Perfect with: Red meat, game or cheese dishes. Best served at 16ºC to 18ºC.

Winemakers: Rui Cunha and Jean-Claude Berrouet.
