VZ 15 Gerações Doc Douro
Field blend over 30 different Douro red grape varieties, issued form old vineyards found around the region. Van Zellers & Co. 15 Gerações Douro Red reflects the different “terroirs” that composed the greatest Port and Douro wines for many centuries
All the grapes for all our Douro red wines are foot crushed in old granite “lagares” for 24 hours and then ferment in 5.000 kgs stainless steel tanks between 8 and 12 days. After racking and pressing, the wine is then aged in new, one and two year old French oak 225 litres barriques until the bottling date stated on the label. Van Zellers & Co. 15 Gerações Douro Red is a wine with great aromatic complexity of red fruits from the Douro. 2015 has great grip and power, with an explosion of different red fruits, like raspberries, blackberries and cherries, and a smooth persistence for a delightful finish. It promises to age beautifully in bottle for many years.
