Description

Vintage Ports are a selection of the very best wines from an exceptional year and represent only a small portion of the harvest. Their opulent organoleptic characteristics correspond to unusually excellent wines of a kind that are most probably achieved only three years in every decade. The 2007 Real Companhia Velha is a very deep and black purple colour. A very concentrated and fruity aroma, with jammy, blackberries and plum notes. The great mouthfeel reveals all the complexity flavour of fruit, full-bodied and balanced wine soft and velvety background, a long and lasting end.

Vintage Ports are a selection of the very best wines from an exceptional year and represent only a small portion of the harvest. Their opulent organoleptic characteristics correspond to unusually excellent wines of a kind that are most probably achieved only three years in every decade. The Real Companhia Velha Vintage Ports are produced from selected parcels located at our 3 Class A estates: Quinta das Carvalhas, Quinta dos Aciprestes and Quinta do Síbio. The centennary old vines of Quinta das Carvalhas are the spine of this great Port, with more than 30 grape varietals in one single parcel - a technique used by our ancestors as a method of spreading production risks - offering immense complexity and originality. From Quinta do Síbio and Quinta dos Aciprestes we look towards the strong character of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca.

Since its foudation on the 10th september 1756 by Royal Charter of D. José I, King of Portugal, under the auspices of his Prime Minister, Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, Marquis of Pombal, the importance of this chartered Company was reflected by the valuable services to the community, being the most relevant, the demarcation of the Douro region – the oldest wine appellation in the world. Since 1960, Real Companhia Velha has been run by the Silva Reis family, who have dedicated their efforts to the production of both Port and Douro wines, focusing on the study and development of the Douro terroir. The Company owns 5 quintas in the Douro valley – Quinta das Carvalhas, Quinta de Cidrô, Quinta dos Aciprestes, Quinta do Casal da Granja and Quinta do Síbio – with a total vineyard surface of 557 ha.
