Quinta do Silval
Quinta do Silval are in a stunning location for producing Port wine grapes – Vale de Mendiz, which sits just past Pinhao on the way to Alijo. Their vineyard lies just in front of the Quinta do Noval ‘Nacional’ vineyard , which, when wine is produced from it, sells for over 1000 Euros a bottle. They have 60 hectares of A grade old vine vineyard and have been producing Port wine for over 150 years. Ferments are still carried out in the traditional open granite lagares and foot treading is a critical part of the process. The Magalhaes house style is to produce very concentrated, highly extracted but beautifully balanced wines that have brilliant ageing potential.
