Messias

messias-portCaves Messias is an historic Port Wine producer, world famous for both their Vintage and Colheita Ports. The company was founded in 1926 by Messias Baptista and has remained in his descendants’ hands to this day, his heirs now sitting together on the board of directors. The company keeps an extensive back catalogue of rare and sought-after vintages.

Messias’ most famous estate, Quinta do Cachão, sits in the subregion Cima Corgo – the most inhospitable area within the Douro. This estate takes its name from the Cachão de Valeira: a large rock which prevented navigation down the river, and the reason the subregion was not used to cultivate grapes until the early 19th century. The Cachão was destroyed in 1807, allowing estates to spring up along the valley – including the eponymous Quinta. Vines on the estate were first planted in 1845 by Barão do Seixo, before being sold to Afonso Cabral years on. Cabral’s family kept the property throughout the Phylloxera blight that nearly destroyed European wine, before finally selling it to the Messias family in 1956; the family proceeded to buy the neighbouring estate of Quinta do Rei two years later, then began complete renovations of the two estates.

Messias, 2015

A staff favourite, this richly textured red wine comes from the up and coming Bairrada region in Portugal. It is made by the indigenous grape Baga, the flagship variety of the region, aged for 24 months in 50% new French barriques. Baga's small berries and thick skins make for intense, tannic wines.

Tasting Notes Intense ruby colour. Atlantic characteristic wine, where balsamic nuances of resin and cedar get involved with iodine and salted sensations. Huge structure and great potential for ageing. ***18,5 points, Revista de Vinhos ***

Serving Tips & Storage Serve at a temperature of 16°C to 18ºC and pair with savoury meat and game dishes as well as Italian cuisine.

*** 90 Points Robert Parker***

Valdoeiro is the family estate of Messias in the region of Bairrada. The 2015 Reserva Quinta do Valdoeiro is a 70/25 blend of Baga and Touriga Nacional, with 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine aged for 18 months in 60% used French oak and comes in at 13.1% alcohol.

Tasting Notes Intense ruby ​​coloured wine. Fine and complex aroma, where you can discover fruits of the forest reminiscent of blueberries and cassis, punctuated by mineral sensations of pottery and iodine-like saline. The forest bottom dominates the entire race experience. In the mouth it has a strong structure. However, its silky tannins and refreshing acidity suggest a wine with enormous aging potential.

Messias, 2005

Colheita Port, Douro

Colheita Ports are created from a single vintage, differentiating them from Tawny Ports, which are a blend of several vintages.

This excellent port from Caves Messias offers maturing notes of dried red fruit, prunes and spice. Smooth with excellent balance. Long and vibrant. (VINTAGES panel, Jan. 2015)

Colheita Port Storage and Serving Advice:
Colheita Port should be stored in a cool and dry place, sheltered from light and temperature fluctuations, and the bottle should remain in an upright position. If stored correctly, Colheita Ports will keep for decades in the bottle. Over time, it is natural that a little sediment will form at the bottom of a bottle of colheita Port wine.
