Quinta do Noval launches first vintage of Terroir Series Vinhas do Passadouro Douro red wine
Christian Seely and Carlos Agrellos are very pleased to announce the launch of the first vintage of Quinta do Noval Terroir Series Vinhas do Passadouro.
Terroir Series is a new wine range launched by Quinta do Noval giving the opportunity to discover specific terroirs identified as exceptional. Quinta do Noval Vinhas do Passadouro 2020 is the second in this Terroir Series wine range.
This Douro red wine is made from an exceptional terroir situated on the left bank of the Pinhão river. The vines are planted principally on ancient walled terraces, at the heart of which lies a 0.93 hectare parcel of old vines. These old vines from 1930 are a field blend of over 20 different traditional varieties from which we were able to vinify and isolate a restricted volume of outstanding wine. Vinhas do Passadouro 2020 is the first release. This parcel of old vines is mainly composed of schist soil with a high mineral content including quartz, mica, and various types of feldspar that contribute to the unique flavours and characteristics found in this wine.
