It all began in 1918 when, a few months before the Armistice, Manoel Domingues Poças Júnior, 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 the head offices in Vila Nova de Gaia, where they remain to this date. 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.
Golden yellowish brown to amber. Intense and concentrated with honey and dried fruits flavours. Concentrated and smooth, showing a good balance between sweetness and typical acidity associated with aged Tawnies. An involving wine with a long lasting finish.
Enjoy this wine with stilton, blue veined French cheese, walnuts or a treacle tart.
