In 2001, Sandra Tavares da Silva (Quinta do Vale D. Maria and Quinta de Chocapalha) and her husband Jorge Borges (then Niepoort, now Passadouro) started to realize their dream. They bought a 2 ha vineyard of very old sticks in Vale de Mendiz next to Noval. The annual harvest is 4000 bottles and 100 Magnums. From the first harvest they have become icons of the Douro and are nationally and internationally acclaimed for the charm and character of their wines that represent the unique terroir of the Douro region.

The Wine & Soul Pintas is a blend of old vines (84 years) from the Pinhão Valley and is a blend of more than 30 grape varieties from the Douro. The Pintas has matured for 20 months in French oak (30% new and 70% second-year wood). The wine starts a bit strict, but this is actually just a baby and through oxygen and decanting, its true nature slowly emerges and that is strength wrapped in an elegant coat. In the nose intense black fruit, cassis, earthy, complex. The wine has a fine concentration, focus and precision. The texture is pure velvet. In the mouth black fruit, muscular, mineral, notes of dark chocolate and mocca with a long warm finish with supple tannins. 97/100 Parker and an impressive drinking window

This elegant tyrant screams for red meat and game dishes with strong sauces and hard cheeses
