Porca de Murça is Douro’s leading brand, having celebrated 85 years of existence in 2013, and becoming one of Portugal’s oldest wine brands. The brand originated from a folktale from the small village of Vila de Murça, in the Douro Valley. The Porca de Murça Reserva Red is fermented in stainless steel, followed by a 12 month ageing period in french oak barriques. This process will allow the wine to achieve a harmonious and balanced structure.
The wine is fresh, with a beautiful ruby colour and aromas of red fruit harmoniously integrated with creamy vanilla notes, demonstrating notable aromatic intensity and complexity. Very balanced and round, resulting in a very pleasant and long lasting finish. This wine partners brilliantly with red meats, game and pastas.
