About This Wine

  • WINEMAKER

    This wine takes its name from the location of the vineyard from which the grapes come: Douro Superior (Upper Douro).
  • PRODUCTION

    The grapes, coming from the best Touriga Nacional plot of Quinta do Crasto, are taken to the winery The grapes, coming from our property Quinta da Cabreira in the Douro Superior sub-region, are taken to the winery in plastic boxes and rigorously inspected on a sorting table on arrival. The grapes are then completely destemmed and slightly crushed. After this, the must is transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months
  • POINTS

    92 POINTS! Wine Enthusiast, 2014 Vintage

    "This wine has fine tannins, rich black fruits and a dry core. It is produced by the Roquette family, who owns this spectacular estate high above the Douro. A solid, structured wine, it's packed with tannins and fruit, finishing with acidity."

    92 POINTS! Wine Spectator, 2013 Vintage

    "Very plush, with concentrated dark plum, Asian spice and dark currant flavors that are creamy and rich-tasting. Medium-grained tannins on the long finish are filled with dark chocolate and black licorice notes. Better than previously reviewed. Drink now through 2020."

    93 POINTS and #25 of the Top 100 of 2015 by Wine Spectator, 2012 Vintage

    "Well-crafted and suave, with refined flavors of raspberry tart, red plum and cherry pastry, matched to cardamom and savory spice notes. Silky tannins and a plush, creamy finish offer chocolate mousse accents. Drink now through 2022."
