Maçanita Vinhos is a project, of two brothers and two enologists who seek to explore the terroir of the Douro. In 1756, the DOURO became the first demarcated and regulated region in the world. However, there are so many different terroirs and expositions in the Douro, that one could say Douros. That is why, between 1935 - 1947, a class system of terroirs in the Douro is created that range from letter A to letter F with the right to benefit. The letter A plots are the best plots for fortified wine, closer to the river, which originate grapes with more ripeness, concentration, and accentuated power, which have brought so much fame to the Douro. This is our Douro Letra A.
The grapes are hand picked and transported in 18 kg boxes. In the winery, cold pre-maceration, spontaneous fermentation, cuvaison for 32 days. Aged 90% in neutral French oak barrels and 10% new barrels for 14 months.
