Oscar Quevedo founded Portos Quevedo in San Joao da Pesqueira in the heart of the Douro Valley. The Port House is the creation of several generations who shared the same passion for the production of Port wines. The Quevedos are constantly on the lookout for new and even better terroirs to expand their vineyards, which now cover over 100 hectares. They bring us this fine range of Ports dubbed “The One”.
The blend includes the Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cao and Tinta Barroca grape varieties. A total de-stemming of the grapes and a slow fermentation at a controlled temperature of up to 30°C were carried out. This Port was aged for 4 years in French oak barrels and foudres (tuns) to achieve a slow, carefully controlled oxidation, typical of tawny wines.
Recommended pairings: foie gras or custard-based desserts, tiramisu, pineapple…
The palate shows a nice balance of sweetness and acidity with hints of soft oak. The finish is harmonious, long and persistent.
Its nose shows lovely jammy fruit and plums combined with notes of dried fruit, figs and hazelnuts.
