Quevedo Tawny Port NV

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalQuevedo is part of a new generation of small family wineries in the Douro. For years, they grew grapes and made Port wine for Vila Nova de Gaia merchants. Quevedo cultivates 100 hectares of vineyards across six properties in the Douro Valley, in Cima Corgo and the Douro Superior. Their Tawny, a 43% touriga franca, 34% tinta barroca, 19% tinta roriz, 4% touriga nacional, is a solid example of starter Tawny offering a fresh entry of dried red fruit. At the same time, on the palate, plums, spices, and caramel run through the finish. Best of all, the finish is clean and less sweet, adding some overall complexity. Open a bottle and comfortably serve it for over two months from your sideboard. It is much better than the previous version.Tasted: 11 October 2023Tasted by: Prices:
