Quinta do Crasto Reserva Old Vines 2015

The Quinta do Crasto Reserva Old Vines is made from grapes sourced from old vines at Quinta do Crasto averaging around 70 years of age and is an authentic blend of the best that the Douro has to offer.

Quinta do Crasto has 40 hectares of old vines divided amongst 42 vineyard lots, the most famous of which are the Vinha da Ponte and Vinha Maria Teresa. Each of these plots of old vines is planted in dozens of mixed varieties and produces, on average, 3,000 litres/hectare. The low yield of these old vines, together with the 18 months that the wine ages in French and American oak barrels in the temperature-controlled Barrel Cellar, makes Quinta do Crasto Reserva Old Vines a complex and concentrated wine.

Quinta do Crasto Reserva Old Vines shows complex aromas, with well-integrated fruit and oak notes and a hint of spice. Intense and deep on the palate, it is well balanced by the firm structure of the tannins and delivers a long and lingering finish. It is ideal to accompany hearty meat and game dishes. Since it is bottled unfiltered, some sediment may form during bottle ageing.

Organic Vines in Vineyard

It is estimated that there are more than 10,000 grape varieties in present commercial production, yet this probably includes the same grapes under other names. With the increase of DNA fingerprinting it is thought that the real number might come down closer to 5,000.
