O Produtor, tasting note published in October 24th 2023

Citrine color with greenish hints. Delicate aroma, with notes characteristic of the unmistakable character of the Riesling grape. On the palate, it surprises with remarkable acidity, a striking structure, creamy texture, and the delicate retro-nasal aroma that give it a long and attractive finish.

Quinta dos Termos

Concept: The great German grape has proven itself in Beira Interior, where it produces austere, acidic white wines with a mineral aroma and enormous longevity, developing the well-known kerosene aroma during its bottle aging.

Vinification: Manual harvest in 15 kg crates. Total crushing and destemming with protection against early oxidations. Clarification by gravity action for 18 hours. Controlled fermentation between 20ºC and 22ºC. Stainless steel aging.

Harmonization suggestions: Strong oven-baked fish dishes or cod and octopus à la lagareiro (Portuguese specialty where octopus is oven-baked with olive oil, garlic, and herbs, creating a tender texture inside and a crispy skin outside).

Allergens information

Contains sulphites.

J. Carvalho Family Estates

J. Carvalho Family Estates was born at Quinta dos Termos, which serves as its headquarters, and is a historic producer in Beira Interior since 1945. Maintaining the tradition of a family home and combining sustainable production focused on traditional grape varieties, it currently owns three estates.

Quinta dos Termos: with approximately 60 hectares of vineyards planted in granitic soils at an average altitude of 500 meters. It cultivates 18 red grape varieties, such as Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Rufete, Jaen, Tinta Roriz, Marufo, Tinto Cão, Alfrocheiro, Baga, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Sangiovese, and 6 white grape varieties, such as Fonte Cal, Síria, Arinto, Verdelho, and Riesling.

Quinta do Pocinho: Located in the village of Pocinho, in Vila Nova de Foz Côa, Quinta do Pocinho is a historic property in Douro Superior. It has about 22 hectares of vineyards on terraces and elevated vineyards, between altitudes of 200 and 350 meters. The predominant grape varieties on this property are the reds Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cão, and Tinta Roriz, and the whites Rabigato and Viosinho, with some old vines with a mixture of dozens of other grape varieties, resulting in wines that express the telluric strength of the place. The landscape at Alto do Pocinho is strongly marked by the Douro River and the imposing Vale da Veiga.

Herdade do Lousial: Herdade do Lousial emerged from the desire to produce wines in Beira Baixa, south of Serra da Gardunha, and was integrated into the Quinta dos Termos family in 2015. Located at the transition from mountains to plains in the Castelo Branco countryside, the estate has low-fertility but deep soils, providing the ideal environment for producing high-quality grapes. Designed from scratch, this property has implemented an innovative precision viticulture system over approximately 32 hectares of vineyards, including red grape varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Rufete, Tinta Roriz, Syrah, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, and white varieties like Síria, Callum, Fonte Cal, Riesling, among others.
