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.

A beautiful concentrated wine showing fine ripe fruit. Perfect acidity makes this wine beautifully balanced with a potential to age.
Ideal with grilled or roasted savoury beef and lamb dishes.
Aged in 80% new French oak.

Highly Recommended Douro Reds, Decanter, January 2023: "Pencil lead, garrigue herbs, savoury fruits, well defined with a lovely intensity of fruit. On the palate it's lighter in style, very elegant and exhibits excellent balancing freshness."
