Winemaker's Notes:

Quinta do Vale Meao Duoro Meandro is a deep red color. It has a very live and expressive fruit aromas and flavors. There is very good balance on the palate, showing great elegance and a remarkable long finish.
My Notes:

About Quinta do Vale Meao:

Our aim is to uphold the originality and complexity of our wines by exploring, to the utmost, the combination of the different traditional Douro varietals grown in separate blocks in the vineyards and the different styles that result from the geological variations of our soil.

We also give preference to combining traditional winemaking methods in lagares with modern technologies. This is why we restored and totally re-equipped the centuries-old Adega dos Novos winery, taking care to preserve its fine architectural features and recover the imposing stone treading tanks. The Adega da Barca Velha wine lodge, reserved exclusively as a warehouse for Port, was reconstructed in 2007.
