In 1918, a few months before the Armistice, Manoel Domingues Poças Júnior, who had been born in the heart of the Port Wine hustle and bustle, decided to establish his own company. Manoel Poças was 30 years old and he had some experience in this business. With his uncle, he created a company to sell grape spirits to large Port Wine shippers. Soon afterwards he opened a head office in Vila Nova de Gaia, where they remain to this day. Today, with three quintas in the best winemaking areas of the Douro Demarcated Region, Poças ensures its total control over the quality of its wines and the family is more involved than ever before.
Ruby with a dark core. Clean and fruity notes, with layers of mulled black berry, cherry stone and a wonderfully crunchy, classy baked cherry pie, balanced on a nerve edge of freshness and refined brooding power.... Full-bodied, aromatic and elegant. Oh so very, very good!
Lovely with roast lamb, lighter game dishes and decent roast pork.
In stainless steel vats until bottling date.
