Region: Douro.

Located at the heart of the Cima-Corgo on the Douro’s right bank with spectacular view over the river, Quinta da Boavista is one of the most iconic properties of the demarcated region. The estate was part of the first Douro demarcation ordered by the Marquis of Pombal in 1756 and it is famed not only for its 40 hectares of top-quality vines, but also for it historic ties to Joseph James Forrester.

The mainstay of Quinta da Boavista, this Reserva is a blend of grapes from the estate's older vines and newer plantations. As is common to all Boavista wines, the Reserva was aged in French oak barrels from different cooperages and with different levels of toast for two years, followed by another year's aging in bottle. The result is a very complex wine that reveals itself gradually on a number of different levels.

Colour Deep, intense ruby.
Nose This wine has a deep aroma that shows immense complexity for its young age.
Masterful integration of the aromatic components from both fruit and barrel. Up front we meet a broad palette of red and black fruit (strawberry, blackberry, raspberry), some floral notes (violet and meadow flowers) and more than a hint of spice.
Palate The structure is present but delicate, once again supported by marked aromatic elements to produce a profile of great elegance and marked mouth-feel.
Very long finish, which points to a huge potential for ageing.
