Vinification
Quinta dos Canais is one of the Upper Douro’s greatest vineyards. The property is principally planted with Touriga Nacional (26%) and Touriga Franca (33%). These vines mostly date from the early 1980’s, so they are at an ideal stage of maturity, being well over 25 years old. In addition the estate has a high proportion of vines (16%) that date back to the mid 20th century. The property’s steeply terraced vineyards are laid out in a natural amphitheatre created by a wide sweep of the majestic Douro river, enjoying a privileged south-facing aspect, which ensures ample exposure to the sun and therefore fully ripe grapes.
 
Quinta Vintage Ports are made and bottled in the same way as ‘declared’ Vintage Ports, although normally they are ready to drink sooner than the latter: usually after 10 to 15 years. However, the best wines, such as those from Canais, have the potential to continue developing in bottle for decades more.
