Quinta do Portal Auru 2011 is Douro’s excellence!

It’s a unique and rare wine created from a blend of Touriga Nacional (55%), Tinta Roriz (40%) and Touriga Franca (5%). Fermentation takes place in small lagares where we end up by having a very intimate relation with the wine, allowing us to carefully look after the grapes and perform a very smooth extraction. With a deep violet colour, reveals notes of black fruit and pepper. It’s concentrated and well defined and has an expressive and long final. A wine with great personality, superior and exclusive, that will age to perfection in bottle. AURU. GOLD. DOURO.

As in previous vintages the 2009 AURU was vinified in small open fermentation tanks in a delicate and personalized way with the purpose of getting the best our grapes offer, allowing us to extract its powerful tannins without compromising the complexity and elegance.
Very dense and concentrated, it impresses for the quality of the fruit and a multisensory complexity.
It is dark in colour with an aroma where the black fruits dominate along with a fresh floral sensation and some spices. The presence in the mouth is impressive, well structured, showing its grip but never losing the balance and harmony. In the final we have the perception of its youth, but also the great capacity of ageing that will surely make us proud with the course of the years.

The 2007 AURU is again a very special bottle of wine, probabily the best yet. In this vintage we added a little touch of Touriga Franca to round it out. The 2007 harvest was a wonderful one in the Douro with the wines retaining excellent natural acidity that resulted from the cooler months of July and August. This led to the most silky and elegant AURU, with great freshness and concentration of fruit.

It is a selection of the most outstanding and concentrated wine made in classic vintages. It is a blend of our best Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz from Quinta dos Muros. Dark and incredibly dense in colour, the wine has ripe cassis on the nose, massive ripe tannins, and huge fruit concentration. The finish has remarkable length and persistence.

Quantities are very scarce.
