This 2016 Claudia's Reserve red wine is a roughly equal blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz with dollops (about 5% combined) of Tinto Cão and Tinta Amarela, aged for 12 months in second use French oak. It is a ripe, tannic and herbal wine, this has been produced for aging. It shows a dark tannic side over the juicy black plum fruits and berry flavors. The wood aging shows in the way the wine smoothes out at the end, leaving a rich, full-bodied aftertaste.

Most of the wines from the Douro are named after the vineyards where the grapes that make the wine come from. Difficult names, hardly to pronounce and easy to forget. Also, they commit the winemaker to a blend of grapes from that property that in certain years, being for a dry Winter, rainy Spring or just under performance of a certain variety the winemaker maybe not like that much. On the top of that our winemaker has a lovely name that is hard to forget. Exactly, Claudia it is! So Claudia’s wine is an expression of what Claudia, the winemaker together with Teresa, love most on each harvest. Claudia’s wine is a blend of grapes from different plots. They don’t follow the some recipe every harvest as the vines don’t produce the same grapes every year. One thing we can assure, all our grapes are hand picked and treated as small treasures.
