Val Moreira Altitude 734m Red 2018

45,70 €

Wine with a more open color than the other Val Moreira red wines, has a very captivating aromatic elegance. The fresh fruit combines very well with the notes of cigar box and spices it receives from the aging in used barrels. In the mouth, the silky and fresh texture prepares a surprisingly long and addictive finish.

Located on the south bank of the Douro River, in Cima-Corgo, the historic Quinta do Val Moreira was purchased by XVINUS in 2018 and requalified for wine tourism. It has 23 hectares dedicated to the production of Port and high quality Douro wines, 2 hectares of olive groves and 2 hectares of peanuts. Quinta do Val Moreira consists of an old map from the 19th century, well known at the time: the map of the Baron de Forrester who had the dream of making the Douro River navigable and safe to the Spanish border.

Part of the vineyards is located in another tributary valley of the Douro, which had one of the largest water lines between Marmelal and Folgosa. They called him Valmor. These vines are contiguous to the ruins of the old house of “Quinta de Valmor” that would have belonged to the Viscount of Valmor.

Another historical aspect surrounding the estate is its location near one of the two landmarks built by Marquês de Pombal in 1757, which served to delimit the area of ​​the Douro's fortified wines, giving rise to the first demarcated wine region in the world.
