A fresh and approachable style of Port from Eirados, made from hand picked grapes. Intense plum, redcurrants and a little spice.

A fantastic example of single estate port wine. Traditionally made using foot-treading in granit lagars before fortification. They vinify by parcel and grape variety, before ageing for a short period in large, old oak. The final wine is an expert blend from across different parcels and vintages, bringing together grape varieties and soil-types to fully represent the character of the whole estate.
Its dark, concentrated fruit character comes from perfectly ripe grapes grown in the warmer Douro Superior. There’s some greener, stalky, herbaceous notes, plus lovely spice and warmth from oak. The sweetness is balanced by fresh acidity so there’s nothing too sticky, and the gentle foot treading leads to soft, fine tannin, and a velvety texture.
Quinta do Vale Meão have been making fantastic port for many years. They don’t bottle everything they make straight away, and leave a proportion to age in their cellars. After many years of this investment, they now have sufficient reserves to draw from and create this wonderful 10 year old tawny port.
What sets this tawny apart is that it has been aged at the quinta, in the Douro Superior. This means it shows a very different developmental character to other tawny ports, most of which are aged in Vila Nova de Gaia, far cooler by the coast!
