Tasting Notes

Deep ruby color. Woodland fruit aroma, eucalyptus leaf, pine and prunes. Solid, with great structure, but with the typical balance and elegance of the Gaivasas. Great complexity and with many good years ahead.

The producer

Wine production is a family tradition for Domingos Alves de Sousa: his father (Edmundo Alves de Sousa) and grandfather (Domingos Alves de Sousa) had already been Douro winemakers. But Domingos Alves de Sousa at first embraced another career. Having graduated in Civil Engineering, however, he did not resist the double appeal (of land and blood), and left his activity in 1987 to dedicate himself exclusively to the exploitation of his inherited farms and to others he later acquired, in which it has been carrying out a model work of land reparcelling and restructuring.

    Tasting Notes Clear wine, deep

    Tasting Notes Clear wine, deep violet red, aromas of plum and black cherry, spices and mineral. Robust, structured and intense with oak barrel notes, good acidity and persistent finish. The producer We grew up in a family of producers, with a strong and heartfelt relationship with wine, land, the countryside and rural property. From an early age we observed their practices and listened with pride and attention to the lessons that our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents gave us. It was then that we learned the first teachings about production and realized that nothing can be achieved in this area without work and sacrifice. We drank the necessary inspiration from the family tradition but we continued to apply our own strategy when we conceived the Herdade das Servas Project, which was born in 1998.

    Tasting Notes With a good

    Tasting Notes With a good concentration of sugars and very good levels of acidity, it is an elegant and fresh wine, with very pure fruit aromas and a long and very fresh aftertaste. Very good balance and acidity, intense and velvety, a red of great elegance. The producer Quinta do Vale Dona Maria is a property situated by the mouth of the Rio Torto. Its history goes back to 1868 and was associated with names like the Symington, who used their grapes to integrate in the vintage Smith Woodhouse. When the Van Zeller family took it on Thursday, they found it almost completely abandoned, with about 10ha of old vines. The recovery work would be arduous, but nothing that would take Cristiano van Zeller away from this arduous task, or not come from a superb "school" such as Quinta do Noval, of which he was president. Work began on the recovery of the vineyard and houses that were almost reduced to dust.
