A new Douro underlined by history
For many years, the tradition at Quinta de São Luiz was to paint the stone walls white. These white walls are pieces of history that are cherished to this day and underline the Douro landscape in a unique way. Pieces of history that sustain the vines and uphold the know-how of many generations. Kopke has now decided to pay homage to this exquisite terroir by bringing back the tradition of painting the stone walls white and labelling its DOC Douro wines São Luiz. It is the merging of the past with the present that confers a unique character to these wines. Taste the history of this underlined Douro.
The wine should be stored in a cool and dry place, sheltered from light and temperature fluctuations, and the bottle should remain in a horizontal position.

- TASTING NOTES THE WINE DNA
- RECOMMENDATIONS SERVICE TEMPERATURE AND PAIRING
Vinification was carried out with total destemming and crushing. Fermented in stainless-steel vats for approximately 13 days at temperatures around 24 ºC. Half of the blend was aged in used oak barrels of 225 liters and the remaining, in stainless-steel vats.
Ruby colour, with engaging aromas of black berries wrapped in subtle notes of spice. In the mouth, the freshness of the fruit flavours is enveloped by fine and powerful tannins making this an elegant and coherent wine. Undoubtedly, a wine for any time of the day.
Best served at a temperature between 14 - 16ºC. Ideal to pair with red meat, game, cheeses and roasted fat fish.
