The native grapes for this Tawny Reserve Port from Magalhaes come from their A-rated vineyard at Vale de Mendiz in Pinhão River Valley, with acidic and schistic soil and an altitude of 250-350m. Average age of the vines is over 30 years. After controlled temperature fermentation and fortification with 77% brandy, the wine is matured in French oak barrels for 7 years.

The result is an incredibly smooth tawny reserve, reddish auburn in colour, with delicious nutty tones running throughout. Complex with simultaneous notes of fresh dried and red fruits. Smooth tannins and a finish of soft caramel. Try with cheese boards, dried fruits and egg desserts.

Quinta do Silval has been a well known port producer since the 1800’s. The estate has 22 hectares of vineyards across the famous parishes of Vale de Mendiz and Roncão, all A-rated; the highest possible vineyard classification in the Douro Demarcated Region. The owners descend from one of the three Magalhães family branches, a name in use since 1870. Each bottle and label is packed with history.
