Quinta do Crasto Finest Reserve Port

Douro Valley

Quinta do Crasto Finest Reserve is a Ruby Reserve Port wine matured for three years on average in large Portuguese oak vats. This is a very elegant, fresh Port wine which provides excellent value for money for a Ruby Port.

Tasting Notes

  • Colour: Vibrant ruby.
  • Nose: Lifted and complex aromas of red berry with balsamic hints. Very involving and charming.
  • Palate: Complex and balanced showing fine and round tannins. Very elegant finish. Fresh and lingering.

The grapes from old vines are taken to the winery in plastic boxes. On arrival in the winery they are rigorously inspected on a sorting table. The grapes with their stems are then slightly crushed and transferred to a traditional stone tank (“lagar”) where they are foot trodden. After this, grape spirit is added to stop the fermentation and fortify the wine. Aging: 2 to 4 years in Portuguese oak vats.

    Quinta do Crasto Finest Reserve Port
    Wine Spectator, May 2020

    "Juicy and forthright, with plum cake and blueberry paste flavors, laced with a streak of cocoa. A flash of bramble gives the finish a punchy counterpoint. Drink now. 350 cases imported."
