A lot of work at Quinta do Panascal is focused on "batch" planting of the top five of the six varietals. Batch planting affords not only the advantage of harvesting the varieties efficiently at optimum maturity and vinifying them separately, but also naturally coincides with planting each varietal in microclimates and exposures best suited to it. The results have been seen in the quality of Port wine being vinified from this vineyard.

Wine EnthusiastIn the Fonseca tradition, this is a hugely rich wine, very dense. It is not all weight, with excellently integrated firm tannins and a range of complex flavors, from nuts and berry fruits to full frontal ripeness. There is some dryness to finish.

Wine SpectatorBlack in color. Shows intense, focused aromas of blackberry and wet earth, with hints of wet tobacco. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with plenty of black pepper and fresh fruit character. Best after 2015.
