2011 Quinta do Passadouro Reserva red
Quinta do Passadouro is located in the world-renowned DouroValley, on the left bank of the Pinhão River. The owners of this estate are the Bohrmann family in partnership with Jorge Serôdio Borges. Jorge’s underlying philosophy for his wines is to achieve balance, with ripeness being particularly important, and the retention of good levels of acidity. The vines at Passadouro are grafted with indigenous varieties from the Douro, like Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Sousão, Tinta Barroca. Over the last few years, large investments were made to modernize the vineyards and install modern winery equipment in order to produce high quality table wines. The port wines, however, are still 100% "foot trodden” in traditional granite "lagares”.
