The prime focus of the estate continues with table wines, but small quantities of two exceptional ports have also been produced, and we welcome these wines to our list; the first Ports to feature on a Clark Foyster portfolio.
Flor das Tecedeiras is a briefly oak aged red, made primarily from a ten year old vineyard planted low down by the river. It’s a fairly classic spicy, peppery Douro red.
The Quinta das Tecedeiras Reserve comes from the old vineyards on the estate and spends 18 months in barrique. It’s an elegant and very classy wine with a fine ageing potential. It puts a clear perspective on the Douro’s ambitions to create world-class table wines.
The Tawny Port is a Douro matured blend of vintages from 2001 to 2008. It’s slightly madeirised in a delicious, tangy and not too sweet way.
