Very full and round wine with enormous complexity from its aging in wood.

Evel

In 1996, we produced the first Evel Grande Escolha, which at the time became the company’s top of range wine. More recently, with the introduction of even greater wines into our portfolio, we have decided, in 2008, to declare this powerful Douro Red as a Reserva, fitting into a mid-high quality basis in our range. The Evel Reserva is produced from vineyards planted at Quinta das Carvalhas, Quinta dos Aciprestes and Quinta do Sibio, located in Pinhão, Vale do Tua and Vale do Roncão accordingly. These three locations benefit from a warm climate, perfect for the production of powerful, structured and elegant wines.
This prestigious Evel Reserva reflects an advanced enological investigation allied to a criterious selection of the best parcels of vineyeard in the company. The wine presents a beautiful and intense ruby colour and powerful fruit and greenish herbal aromas harmoniously integrated with notes of vanilla. Full bodied and round, with excellent structure divulging an immense complexity of flavours due to its 12 month ageing in oak.Limited to existing stock. If the wine you have purchased runs out of stock, we will contact you to suggest a different wine, or to return the amount paid.
