Wine information: Quinta do Coa Vinho Tinto is made by Casa Agricola Roboredo Madeira (CARM) near Almendra in the Upper Douro, an area where olive trees still out-number vines. 40 years ago Celso Madeira, a globe trotting engineer, began buying olive groves and vineyards around the town of Almendra, to add to his family’s ancestral small holdings. He has now retired here amongst a staggering total of 200 Hectares of olive groves and 65 Hectares of vineyards which are all organically grown. The only fertilisers used are sheep droppings!!! Celso and his two sons Rui and Filipe, have set up a company (CARM) to develop the produce of their farms. Wine and Olive Oil are made with equal passion and enthusiasm. Managing Director Rui Madeira believes that climatically the Douro Superior provides the ideal conditions for producing quality grapes and olives. Low rainfall, cold winters, dry summers, are Schistous soils, rocky and generally poor, which make yields low. The wine is a blend Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and other indigenous grapes from Quinta do Coa. Less than 50% of the wine is aged in French and American extra fine grain oak barrels with a medium toast, the other part is aged in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes: Quinta do Coa Vinho Tinto is characterised by aromas of ripe black fruits, blueberries and mulberries, with hints of fennel and wood spice. It tastes of black fruits, with a rich texture and complex flavours on the finish.
