Quinta do Portal 30 Years Old Aged Tawny Porto

Quinta Do Portal has been producing Port wine in the Pinhão valley for more than 100 years, but it has been in the Douro at least since 1477, when the King D. Afonso V grants a portion of land (Comenda de Oliveira) to the noble D. Afonso de Mansilha. Later in 1756, Frei João de Mansilha played a very important role in the demarcation of the Douro and its implementation.

Being a Portuguese house, Portal is keen on having a full range of Tawny Ports including the rare 30 Year Old. This is a blend of wines that have aged in seasoned barrels in the Douro, where it developed a beautiful golden amber colour with delicate green hues and a wonderful rich complex bouquet.
