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.
Tawny with slightly greenish shades. Complex and sweet standing out wood and smoky flavours. Full-bodied and involving, well structured, showing a long and very persistent finish.
Enjoy this wine with stilton, blue veined French cheese, walnuts or a treacle tart.
Voted Best Colheita Port - Decanter World Wine Awards 2017 - platinum 96/100 points. "Fresh grapefruit maramlade with a rather lovely hint of rancio on the nose. Orange peel and soft, wet wood on the palate, which has a vibrant lifted freshness as well. There's a lovely tang on the finish."
