Passadouro Reserva is sourced from a 70-year-old field blend in the schistous Passadouro vineyard. The blend consists of over 30 indigenous varieties including Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, and Touriga Nacional.  The wine is foot-trodden and fermented in a traditional granite lagar and aged in 50% new French oak for 18 months. The exceptional quality of this wine earned its “reserva” designation from Douro’s wine regulation body, the Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e Porto (IVDP).

Tasting Notes

Deep purple in color, this wine features intense aromas of black fruit and spice. The palate is rich yet balanced with firm tannins, impressive concentration, and a long finish.

Food Pairing

Pair with roast lamb, wild boar ragu, or venison.
