Poças Júnior

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.

Tasting Notes

Red. Very rich aromas of ripe young fruits. Strong and full-bodied, long and persistent finish.

Food Matches

Enjoy this wine with stilton, blue veined French cheese, walnuts or a treacle tart.

Vinification

Matured in wood for 3 years, followed by blending of several Port wines from different harvests.
