Tasting Notes: This is a dense and concentrated wine with complex aromas of blackberry and dark cherry. Lovely acidity on the palate with flavors of licorice, black fruits, and notes of pepper. A long and toasty aftertaste is accompanied by rich tannins.

“This is a dense wine, dominated by Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz. They yield a wine that is powered by black fruits and rich tannins, with plenty of spice and a hint of pepper.” – 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast

“Deep and rather intense in its youth, this Reserva from this big vintage has plenty of everything. It is a little disjointed just now and needs a year (or a couple) in the cellar to come together. It did start to come around with 90 minutes of air, though. It has fine depth, a real backbone and the fruit to soak up the power. This sexy yet burly Reserva looks like a winner, but have a little patience—you won't need a lot, but a little is necessary. It should age well, maybe better than indicated. It should improve in the cellar, not just hold. This might well be one of the best Reservas Portal has made.” – 92 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

To say that Family Mansilha have been producing wines in the Douro region since time immemorial sounds like an exaggeration, but with a history dating back to 1477, they have earned the sentiment. The family is rooted in the history of Portuguese wine, linked to its key moments, such as the establishment of the Douro wine region in 1756. With such a rich legacy, it is no surprise that their current project, Quinta do Portal, is creating incredible bottles. They lean into the concept of “Boutique Winemaking” – focusing on producing small amounts of high-quality wines and embracing the lifestyle along with it. This effort, passion, and dedication has earned them international recognition and accolades. Today, the winery also turns its efforts to combatting climate change with sustainable and organic practices.
