CONCEITO WINES is a family business with headquarters in Cedovim, Vila Nova de Foz Côa, an international project centred in the Douro Valley, Portugal. The acquisition of the 83 hectares of vineyards around Vale da Teja started in the 1940s. However, the first bottling occurred only with the 2005 vintage. The local climate is particularly cold, with high altitude, between 450 m and 600 m. Furthermore, it has both granitic and schistose soils. Oenologist Rita Marques, with education in Douro and Bordeaux and professional experience in Douro, California, Bordeaux, New Zealand and South Africa, performs the winemaking. CONCEITO produces an yearly total of 150 000 bottles in Portugal, New Zealand and in South Africa. This make it one of the youngest and most dynamical Portuguese producers today.
In just a few years, CONCEITO WINES earned an aura of quality and personality that brings them respect among consumers throughout the world.
Conceito Porto Tawny 10 years old Tasting Notes
Caramelized walnuts mixed with cotton candy and dried fruit. Earthy notes, as well as trail mix and ripened figs unite behind in taste to a perfect symbiosis. Subtle but persistent sweetness in the finale.
Delicious as an aperitif or following an evening meal. It can also accompany chocolate, cheeses and cream-based desserts or desserts that are not overly sweet. It goes very well with dry fruit and nuts, nut cakes and Swiss rolls.
