Product Description

LBV Port wine is made from a single vintage that is bottled after 4 to 6 years of maturation in large Portuguese oak vats. Quinta do Crasto LBV is dark ruby in colour with red fruit aromas and good concentration and length on the palate. This wine is bottled unfiltered. This allows the wine to maintain its characteristics and evolve throughout the years. Decanting is recommended. Characteristics Grape varieties - Old vines several grape varieties Vineyards - Socalcos (terraces supported by stone walls) Aspect - East/South Soil - Schist Appellation- Douro Winemaking The grapes from old vines are taken to the winery in plastic boxes. On arrival in the winery they are rigorously inspected on a sorting table. The grapes with their stems are then slightly crushed and transferred to a traditional stone tank (lagar) where they are foot trodden. After this, the grape spirit is added to stop the fermentation and fortify the wine.
