Making "signature wines" is the purpose and commitment of João Almeida d'Eça in his Quinta Nª Srª do Loreto, located in Sabrosa in the Douro wine region.
The producer, João Almeida d'Eça, a lawyer by vocation, acquired Quinta Nossa Senhora do Loreto in 1987, totally driven by the enthusiasm to rebuild the farm and the manor house and to give new life to the property's 9 hectares of vineyards, thus combining his passion for wine and viticulture. And through wine he wants to leave his mark on the region, standing out for its personality, guiding by excellence and enhancing the distinctive trait of its terroir, while favoring native grape varieties and assuming a strong environmental commitment and the adoption of sustainable production practices.
Viticulture and Climate
After an unusually dry winter, April was a month of heavy rain, as well as the beginning of May. The summer was not too hot and there were few heat spikes in July and August. These months were relatively dry, having only rained significantly on the 23 and 25th September. However, dry weather returned, allowing harvest without rain until October 10. Maturation was smooth, allowing good phenolic maturation, but also the preservation of fresh scents. Manual harvest carried out on August 28, 2012, ensuring the exclusion of any bunch that did not have the required quality.
Fermentation and Aging
The wine was conducted in stainless steel vats with controlled temperature and a prolonged and very smooth skin contact. Conducted the malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels where it remained for 12 months.
