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.

Yellow straw in colour with a green hue in the glass. On the nose the aromas are intensely citrusy with subtle notes of a more bitter orange peel and floral acacia. On the palate, this wine is both elegant and fresh, with vibrant acidity and juicy peach notes. The citric flavours are persistent and are coupled with a refreshing minerality. The texture is silky and balanced, with a long finish.
Drink with light cheeses or grilled white fish
Grape selection happens on the vineyard followed by a manual harvest. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel vats with a controlled temperature. This wine was bottled in January 2024
