Vinification
The grapes are sourced from various parcels of vineyards with different classic Douro grape varieties. Fermentation is carried out in traditional lagares, with foot treading. After which ageing is carried out in the lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia in tr aditional 600L casks where oxygen reveals itself as a fundamental element in the process of altering the organolactic characteristics of the wine. After 6, 7 years ageing the wines are blended prior to bottling."
Ripening
De afgewerkte wijn wordt getransporteerd van de Douro naar Vila Nova de Gaia (het zusterstadje van Porto, aan de kust) om daar te rijpen in de koele opslagplaatsen. De rijping gebeurt in traditionele portovaten van 550 of 600l (pipas genoemd). Deze v atrijping bepaalt de typische tawny-stijl: door langdurige, gedoseerde blootstelling aan zuurstof via de poriën van de vaten oxydeert de wijn en ontwikkelt aroma's van gedroogde vruchten, noten en koffie.


"Morgadio da Calçada Tawny Reserve was created with the objective of portraying a classic style of port wine, where the characteristics of freshness and ripe fruit in young wines slowly give way to aromas and flavours from a long and calm evolution . A rich and complex wine, resulting from a rigorous selection of special wines with 6, 7 years of age."
