Special Reserve Tawny

Jockey Club

A bright garnet colour with orangey hues. A broad, perfumed nose, with intense aromas of dried fruit and spice, notes of toffee and a hint of toast. In the mouth it is full-bodied, unctuous and complex, while revealing remarkable elegance that extends into a persistent finish.

Vinification

Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. A very fine wine, made by blending wines of different harvests and ages, to ensure a final wine that is mature, vigorous and intense.

Jockey Club

Traditional Douro grape varieties, in particular Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz.

The rows of vines are traditionally planted across the slope in horizontal terraces. More recently vines have been planted up the slope (called “vinha ao alto”, meaning vertically planted).

Schistous-sandstone (greywacke), interspersed with granite in some places.

Up to 600 meters.
