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.

Dark amber colour, aromas of dried fruit, cocoa with subtle and complex spicy notes. On tasting, the aromas develop and evolve - with notable balance and freshness. Long lasting and persistent finish.
Drink with Crème brûlée or Apple Strudel
Produced from vine's aged 40 - 60 years. The soil composition is predominantly schist. Schist is resistant to weathering, retains heat well and has good drainage. In search of water, the vines roots descend into schist’s rocky layers, allowing the vine roots to penetrate the cracks down as far as seven or eight meters deep. On the way, the roots absorb lots of minerals, which is known to give low yields of small grapes with thick skins and a high concentration of flavour, colour, acidity and tannins. Grapes are harvested by hand before temperature controlled fermentation halted by the addition of grape brandy.
