Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby red color. Distinctive of Touriga Nacional grape, floral hint of violet and bergamot, ripe blackcurrant combined with the elegance of Allier oak. Robust yet smooth tannins, perfectly complemented by berry fruit flavors, great balance and complexity. Very smooth, pleasant and persistent.

Goes well with game, spicy roasted red meat.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Well-structured and focused, with loads of raspberry, cherry, currant and wild plum flavors, accented by powerful licorice, black olive and pepper notes. Mocha and dark chocolate details appear on the lusciously spiced and pure-tasting finish.

Quinta da Fonte do Ouro, Portugal
Quinta da Fonte do Ouro Winery Image
Quinta da Fonte do Ouro, just like Quinta da Giesta, shares the historical importance on the foundation of the Boas Quintas project. The exceptional wines from this estate are in accordance with the philosophy of winemaker Nuno Cancela de Abreu, on which each wine must reflect the viticultural potential of each terroir.

Boas Quintas started in 1991 in the Dão region, but only in 2010 did it expand to a multi-regional project that utilized the best of the Quinta da Giesta, Quinta do Garro, Quinta da Fonte do Ouro and Herdade da Gambia estates. The company captivates its clients with the production of certified quality wines, resulting from a winemaking experience that uses advanced technology to develop the qualities of each wine to its fullest potential, adding sophistication and complexity.

Best known for intense, impressive and age-worthy fortified wines, Portugal relies almost exclusively on its many indigenous grape varieties. Bordering Spain to its north and east, and the Atlantic Ocean on its west and south coasts, this is a land where tradition reigns supreme, due to its relative geographical and, for much of the 20th century, political isolation. A long and narrow but small country, Portugal claims considerable diversity in climate and wine styles, with milder weather in the north and significantly more rainfall near the coast.

While Port (named after its city of Oporto on the Atlantic Coast at the end of the Douro Valley), made Portugal famous, Portugal is also an excellent source of dry red and white Portuguese wines of various styles.

The Douro Valley produces full-bodied and concentrated dry red Portuguese wines made from the same set of grape varieties used for Port, which include Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz (Spain’s Tempranillo), Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cão, among a long list of others in minor proportions.

Other dry Portuguese wines include the tart, slightly effervescent Vinho Verde white wine, made in the north, and the bright, elegant reds and whites of the Dão as well as the bold, and fruit-driven reds and whites of the southern, Alentejo.

The nation’s other important fortified wine, Madeira, is produced on the eponymous island off the North African coast.

Gaining great popularity for its bold but beautifully aromatic dry red wines, Touriga Nacional is the noblest variety in Port wine. Most likely originating from the Dão region, today it grows throughout the Douro Valley as well. Somm Secret—As many as 80 grape varieties can be used to make Port wine, each contributing something unique to the resulting blend. Touriga Nacional adds great color, tannins and aromatics.
