Quinta da Devesa Porto Late Bottled Vintage 2015 Unfiltered

Deep rich ruby color, dense and opaque. Intense nose of crushed berries and red fruits, dark chocolate and pepper. On the palate it’s powerful and challenging, full bodied and harmonious, with spices, raisins and red fruit flavours. Lovely balanced with a velvety but firm tannic structure, that leads to a luscious long finish.
The LBV comes from a single year, a single harvest, with grapes grown exclusively on our estate. It ages four to six years in oak vats before bottling. It’s a distinct LBV, powerful, challenging, full bodied and harmonious, with very well-structured tannins, great freshness and fruit. After opening, remains at its best for a further 15 to 30 days, if properly stored.
In order to retain as much character and depth as possible, it was bottled using the same method as the Vintage, without any stabilization. As an unfiltered wine, it can be drunk immediately, but it will age beautifully in a cellar, developing further complexity. It may throw some deposit and should be decanted before drinking.

About us

Company details

Quinta da Devesa was already included in the first map of the Douro Demarcated Region, created by Baron of Forrester in 1844. Acquired by Fortunato family in 1941, the story of José Fortunato Júnior and his wife, Antónia Soares Fortunato, is of a life dedicated to Port Wine. Since then has been an independent family company, dedicated to the production of Douro and Port Wine.

On the Cima Corgo sub-region, and only 10 kms away from Peso da Régua, Quinta da Devesa vineyards and winery are located on a promontory which overlooks the confluence of the rivers Douro and Corgo, from where a wonderful sight can be enjoyed, covering the valleys of the rivers and mountains of the region.

Its 30 hectares, planted with the grape varieties recommended for the region, go from a quota of 60 m up to 500 m high, part facing south getting an excellent sun exposure, and part facing the buttresses of Marão, where it receives natural cool winds. This diversity of solar and wind exposure provides different levels of grape maturation and development, which allow to temporize harvesting in optimal conditions.

Since 1941, vintages considered of superior quality by the family winemakers, were kept and stored in wooden barrels in the winery cellars. These extraordinary quality wines are used today to produce Quinta da Devesa Port Wines.

Quinta da Devesa Douro and Port Wines are produced exclusively from grapes grown in our vineyards, vinified and aged in the estate.

All the vineyards are farmed under a system of minimum intervention called ‘Integrated Production Management’.

Since 2016, Quinta da Devesa vineyards have been managed under the principles of Integrated Production Management (sometimes referred to as Integrated Crop Protection), a rigorous regime which strives for minimum intervention in the vineyard. In practice this means restricting as far as possible the type and quantity of treatments applied to the vines for the control of pests and diseases.

Prevention is key and data is gathered from our field personnel. The information obtained is used to undertake risk-analysis of potential threats to the vines and in order to avoid the need for aggressive treatments.

Another beneficial aspect of the farming methods introduced by ther viticulture team has been the use of cover crops sown between the rows of vines. These help to conserve moisture and to combat erosion, while also contributing organic matter to the soil. Cover crops are a defence against unwanted weeds and provide an alternative habitat for insects, which are an essential part of the food chain. Thus, the vineyards provide a healthy habitat for birds, reptiles and mammals, ensuring good biodiversity and a balanced and sustainable environment.
