quinta do javali

Oenologist : José Antonio Mendes

Quinta do Javali is a small family business handed down from generation to generation and recoverd in 2000 by a young talented winemaker: Jos Antonio Mendes.

Dynamic and passionate, this young producer is focusing its production on a constant quest for quality and respect of ancestral methods : lagares winemaking barrels (granite) and treading, without neglecting new technologies.

A simple example of this quality research with its LBV 2003: hesitating between classify it as vintage (classification reserved for exceptional years) or a Late Bottled Vintage, Jos Antonio chose to make a beautiful LBV, vintage, rather than an average Vintage, for our great delight ...!

The 17 acres of the Quinta are composed of the main traditional grape varieties: Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Co and Touriga Nacional, able to withstand wide variations in temperature (5 C to 45 C).
The vineyards are on terraces schist, at an altitude of 150 to 300 m. With a planting density of 3.500 vines per hectare, the vineyard produces between 25 and 30 hectoliters per hectare.

Tinto Cão 2004

Exceptional wine produced on the single vine Tinto Co. This native vine is very old and very sensitive that hardly reaches maturity. It is generally used in very small proportions in blends with other grape varieties.
Powerful wine with a very complex and well balancedstructure. It gives us a nice aromatic intensity of black fruit (blackberry and blackcurrant) and spices.
Still difficult to access, this wine will ask to be waiting a few years. Its potential should be 20-25 years.



Soft, fruity and long, offering excellent quality.
