Poeira Dusty 2015
Poeira Dusty is a wine from the dry and sunny Douro valley and has this name because if the thin xist powder that covers you when you walk thru the vineyards in harvest time. But Poeira Dusty has different Douro style, comes from grapes that are protected from the hot afternoon sun and ripe very slow preserving all the flavors and freshness. It is full of character and flavors but vibrant at the same time.
After creating seven vintages as enologist in the Real Companhia Velha, I felt the need to start an individual project where I could apply my ideas and where I could control the entire production process. Without compromises, a wine that would reflect my interpretation of the Douro. In 2001 I bought this quinta and started the Poeira project. A little later, in 2002, I joined Quinta de La Rosa as chief enologist. With the purchase of a quinta in the upper Douro by the Bergqvist family, there emerged a new wine called Passagem, the result of a partnership with the owners.
