Quinta Do Vesuvio 'Pombal Do Vesuvio' 2019

Quinta Do Vesuvio 'Pombal Do Vesuvio' 2019

Pombal do Vesuvio comes from the terraced vineyards that surround the ancient dovecote, ‘pombal' in Portuguese, situated at 200 meter s in the heart of this beautiful and remote property. The vineyard is planted predominately to Touriga Nacional, and this bottling includes the estate fruit as well as Touriga Franca from the Vale da Teja and Minas vineyards alongside small amounts of Tinta Amarela from the QuintaNova vineyard. The grapes for Pombal are hand-picked into 20 Kg boxes. On arrival at the winery the bunches undergo an initial manual sorting followed by gentle de-stemming after which the berries are sorted before being gravity-fed into the small fermenting tanks. Fermentations are monitored and adjusted so that the best of each grape variety is obtained. The winemakers aim to produce for Pombal a well-balanced wine with ripened fruit flavors and approachable from a young age, whilst conserving good aging potential, a characteristic of Douro wines.
