About the Wine
Quinta da Devesa Ports are produced exclusively from lots vinified and aged on the property. Since 1941, the harvests considered of superior quality by the family's winemakers have been stored and aged in wooden casks. These extraordinary wines are now used to produce Quinta da Devesa Ports.
Owned by the Fortunato family, Quinta da Devesa is a small 34-hectare winery in the Cima Corgo sub-region of the Douro Valley, overlooking the confluence of the rivers Douro and Corgo. The winery has been dedicated to the production of Douro and Port wine since 1941. Tawny Ports, both red and white, are the winery's specialty.
The vineyards range in elevation from 500 to 600 meters, part south-facing, with excellent sun exposure, and part north-facing where it receives cooler prevailing winds. This diversity of sun and wind exposure causes varying levels of maturation and development that allow harvesting under optimal conditions.
Tasting Notes: Roasted caramel notes, super-ripe nectarines, a distinct roast character. Elegant and silky texture. Smooth and evolved nuances of nuts, exotic flavors that include dried dates and peaches and pecan nut pie. The finish is exceptionally long, imbued with an elegant interplay of tropical fruits and caramelized nuts that linger beautifully.
The NV 30-Year-Old Tawny Porto was bottled in 2017 with a bar-top cork and 114 grams of sugar. Not imported, this runs around 65 euros in Portugal. Another complex, crisp tawny, this adds power and depth to the 20 this issue, but it is mostly along the same lines. Showing exceptional length on the finish, this lingers beautifully. This is impressive on many fronts, if you appreciate complexity more than richness. ~94 Wine Advocate
Dark gold in color, rich and on the dry side, this is a very fine wine from a family-owned Quinta close to Régua. The long wood aging has introduced great concentration to the dried fruits and burnt toffee flavors. Marmalade and surprising freshness give the wine a lift. It is ready to drink now. ~93 Wine Enthusiast
