Porca de Murça is the most popular and carismatic Douro wine brand, export leader, national best seller, heir to the most noble Douro traditions and original to the popular legend of Vila de Murça.
This Celebratory Edition goes back to 1928, when the brand was established, and celebrates its 85 years of existence, producing over varios decades top quality Douro wine which has come to be apreciated by its loyal consumers over many generations.
In these Old Vines, located at a higher point of Quinta das Carvalhas, we can identify over 35 different varietals, which are essential to the complexity of this wine. These grapes are harvested and placed directly into stone lagars, de-stemmed and treaded by foot. Fermentation occurs in these lagars allowing a soft extraction and preserving the essence and and structure provided by the Old Vines. Ageing occurs in French Oak barriques for a period of 12 months.
Produced from selected parcels of Old Vines, this wine presents a beautiful ruby colour with violet tones. A very aromatic wine with notes of red fruit harmoniously integrated with its aromatic complexity provided by its 12 month ageing in oak barriques. Flavours of mature frute are intensly flavoured on the palate and are highlighted by its great structure with a long lasting finish.
