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.
Lemon yellow in colour, aromas of stone fruit, peach, quince and notes of honey in the end. The palate is compelling, fresh and well-balanced, with a long finish marked by fruity notes.
A perfect pairing with fresh fish, seafood and white meat. Serve between 12-14°C
Vinification in separate of each grape variety and fermentation in barrel. Aged for 9 months in new oak casks with 300 liters, with “batônnage” of fine lees.

Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak, 2022. “Codega and Arinto. Linear and fresh with a touch of creamy, spicy depth. Nice focus and purity here with a good acid line and a stony edge. 90/100”.
