Quinta de Roriz Vintage Port

At Roriz, the classic schist soil of the Upper Douro Valley predominates but the composition is also influenced by the specific geology of the site where the presence of tin and gold tailings from the old mines at the top of the estate, lend a distinctive minerality to Quinta de Roriz Vintage Ports. Situated on the South bank of the River Douro between the villages of Pinhão and Tua, the Quinta forms a natural amphitheatre with varied exposures but a largely northerly orientation. This provides a cooler aspect that is a distinct advantage in very hot, dry growing seasons.
