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.

The harvest of Viosinho was made by the end of August. Arinto and Folgozão were harvested in the beginning of September, by hand and directly to small capacity boxes. Maceration with skins for approximately 10 hours, with fermentation in french oak barrels. Matured for 6 months in the same barrels with bâtonnage method.
A remarkable opulent nose of tropical fruit and subtle notes of smoke from the wood barrel. Striking on the palate for its perfect balance between creaminess and acidity. An engaging and persistent wine.
Best served at a temperature between 12 - 14ºC. Ideal to combine with fat fishes and white meat.
