Description and Reviews:
Quinta de Terra Feita's vines have been supplying Taylor Fladgate with the highest quality grapes for over a hundred years.
This famous old estate is one of the most substantial properties in, what is considered by many, to be the finest wine producing area of the Upper Douro. The Quinta is situated on the western slopes of the Pinhao River Valley. With over 61 hectares under vine it produces 1,300 hectoliters of port wine.
The wines of Terra Feita are all produced in traditional granite lagares on the property. This ancient method still produces the best quality wine; the gentle action of the foot carefully extracts the maximum colour, fruit and tannins from the wine.
Terra Feita wines are powerful, richly perfumed wines, with enormous reserves of fruit. Together with those of Quinta de Vargellas, the wines of Terra Feita form the backbone of the legendary Taylor Fladgate declared vintage ports.
Small amounts of Quinta de Terra Feita have also been bottled, since the beginning of the century, as single quinta vintage ports when a general Taylor Fladgate declaration is not made.
Whilst normally kept for family consumption, small parcels of this single estate vintage are now being released on to the market.
Powerful and richly perfumed, with enormous reserves of fruit, these superb Pinhao Valley wines are now being discovered by a select group of connoisseurs of fine vintage port.
