Quinta Das Carvalhas Vintage Port is a field blend from old vines from the centenary vineyard. It is the top Port from the estate and needs some serious ageing to realise its full potential.

Quinta das Carvalhas is one of the most emblematic and spectacular properties in the Douro valley. Written references regarding this magnificent vineyard can be traced back to 1759. Enjoying a prominent position on the left bank of the Douro river, in Pinhão, the estate covers the entire hillside facing the Douro river and occupies part of the slopes of the right bank of the tributary Torto river. Carvalhas’ old vines, are a post-phylloxera plantation, which have reached the respectful age of a century old and represent one of the richest selection of ancient indigenous Douro varieties.

The 2020 Vintage Port, bottled in July 2022, is a field blend from old vines aged for approximately two years in old vats. It was bottled with 105 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is probably Real Companhia Velha's top quinta, a centenary vineyard with more than 30 varietals planted. Not surprisingly, of RCV's three Vintage Ports this issue, this is probably the only one that has some distinction—and some potential for serious development. Even this is a long way from a masterpiece in this vintage. Still, this is more tightly wound with a more focused finish and lifted fruit. The tannins are relatively ripe, but this will certainly show better at the end of this decade. For all that, I wouldn't bet on this being the safest choice for a serious vin de garde either. It is still nicely done overall, and it has more aging potential than its siblings.
