Quinta da Devesa carries a secular history. In 1844, the well-known Baron Forrester, included this property in what was the first map of the Douro Demarcated Region. But the most important history of this property began last century, in 1941, when the Fortunato family acquired the Quinta, thus beginning a new phase of greater investment in wine production, with a special focus on Port Wines. Later there are also references to DOC Douro wines, which has strengthened its presence in the national and international wine market. Quinta da Devesa remains today an independent family company, oriented to the future, with presence in several international markets. The investment made in recent years has brought greater recognition by wine lovers and specialized critics. The result of all this is also visible through the huge palate of national and international awards achieved to date.

Winemaking

The Port Wines from Quinta da Devesa are produced exclusively from batches vinified and aged on the property. Since 1941 the vintages considered of superior quality by the family winemakers, were stored and aged in wooden casks. These extraordinary wines are now used to produce the Quinta da Devesa Port Wines. Located in the sub-region Baixo Corgo, 10 kms from Peso da Régua, is situated on a promontory that dominates the inflow of the Rivers Douro and Corgo and where you can enjoy a majestic panorama that covers the valleys of those rivers and mountains in the region. Its 34 hectares, planted with the grape varieties recommended for the region, extend from an elevation of 60m to 500m, partly facing south, receiving an excellent exposure to the sun, and partly facing north, from where it receives the coolest prevailing winds. This diversity of sun and wind exposure leads to varying levels of ripeness and development that allow for the timing of harvests under optimal conditions.This 30 Years White Port Wine was obtained from a blend of grape varieties recommended for the demarcated Douro region. Its aging in the warehouses of Quinta da Devesa, took place naturally over many years in wooden jars, promoting the darkening of its initial colour.

Tasting notes

Clear, dark golden colour with greenish copper tinge. With superior complexity, reveals aromas of oak, fruit (peach and hermetic) and some bitter nuts, salted caramel and a touch of honey. Bitter nuts also in the mouth, full-bodied, powerful, elegant and pleasant with an extremely long finish.Robert Parker Wine Advocate (2018): “The 30 Years White Port is a field blend from old vines (50 plus years). It was bottled in July 2015 with 104 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is not necessarily head and shoulders over the 20 Year tasted this issue, but it is very different. Much darker in color, its main flavor difference comes from its far superior complexity. If it lacks the fresh vibrancy of the 20, it is hardly old, dying or decayed. It is a prime time white Port. Moreover, it finishes with a fascinating array of old Tawny-like flavors, including just a whiff here and there of brandy as it airs and warms. Simply beautiful, this seals the deal with its seemingly endless finish. It’s gorgeous. You’ll love tasting it because it is delicious. It’s also a wine to contemplate, probably my favorite white Port of this report.”
