    Winemaker Notes

    Quinta do Crasto Reserva Old Vinesis very expressive on the nose, showing fresh notes of gum cistus and berry fruit as well as delicate spicy hints. Stylish and fresh beginning that leads to a serious and engaging wine. Full and textured on the palate, with fresh berry fruit flavours and silky tannins. Balanced 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.

    Quinta do Crasto, Portugal
    Image of winery
    Located in the heart of the Douro Valley, on the right bank of the river mid-way between Regua and Pinhao, Quinta do Crasto has been in the family of Leonor and Jorge Roquette for over a century. Nestled on a privileged location in the Douro Demarcated Region, Quinta do Crasto dates back to ancient times. The name Crasto is derived from the Latin word "castrum," or Roman fort. With its commanding unobstructed view of the river, it is not difficult to imagine why the Romans would choose to occupy such a strategic site. Quinta do Crasto produces different styles of port and table wines each year. Together with their winemakers and their entire team, they seek to produce year after year wines that display the unique and beautiful characteristics of the Douro, through a tireless devotion to tradition, integrity and excellence.

    Portugal

    Best known for intense and impressive age-worthy, fortified wines, Portugal is unique in that it 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 in part to its relative geographical and, for much of the 20th century, political isolation, Portugal has developed independent of its fellow European compatriots. A long and narrow 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, Portugal’s famous fortified wine (named after its city of Oporto on the Atlantic Coast at the end of the Douro Valley), is the fortified wine for which Portugal is most famous, Portugal is also an excellent source dry red and white wines in various styles.

    The Duoro Valley produces full-bodied and concentrated, dry red 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 wines of the mainland include the tart, slightly effervescent Vinho Verde of 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 Alentejo.

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

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
