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.
Rich, creamy fruits and a smooth, oily texture dominate this full-bodied wine. It also has a lovely zingy character coupled with a chalky minerality.
Try with salmon and seatrout.
Grape selection in the field and harvested manually from vines aged 10-20 years old. Matured in new French "Allier" oak casks (300 litres) with "bâtonnage" of fine lees.
