  • Expert Notes

"Miguel Braga is a rising star in the Douro, known for his extraordinary Tawny Ports and red wines. Miguel, together with his family, is carrying on the winemaking tradition begun by his father Mário, who purchased four properties and combined them into the current winery in one of the most stunning parts of the Douro Valley.

"Sustainable farming processes. All picking is done by hand before being treaded by foot in the lagares to begin the fermentation and extraction process. Fermentation in stone open tanks, interrupted by adding wine brandy. Aged in cask.

"A full arsenal of all manner of tropical fruit hinting at peach sorbet, salted toffee, saddle leather, figs, bitter almond and earthy marijuana. Off-dry exotic flavors of candied orange/grapefruit rind, sweeter nuttiness of praline and almond paste, dried apricot, lychee. A finish of decadently delicious toasted pecan nuance infused with a peach melba-butterscotch aftertaste."
