A very structured wine. Intense red fruit aromas - strawberries and fresh raspberries with hints of violets. On the palate this is fresh, mineral and very fruit forward. Combined with fresh acidity, all elements combine to produce a wine of great elegance.

This is a powerhouse, simply put. With the extra year in the bottle, though, it is also displaying its beautiful fruit, crisp, silky texture and lingering finish. The oak is a bit prominent, but it is already being pulled in. This shows fine potential now, well on its way to absorbing the tannins and oak. It seems like a different...

TASTING NOTES

Massive wine, concentrated with excellent quality of fine tannins. Aromas of violet, with well-integrated wood that supports the muscular texture, but very balanced by acidity. In the mouth has class and strength, but with soft and silky tannins.

TASTING NOTES

Falorca's white is always a prime example of balance in a white wine; fruit, oak and acidity come together in harmony and create a wine to be enjoyed on release and for years ahead. A majority Encruzado blend that offers ripe tropical fruit, crisp acidity and a beautifully opulent texture from time in new barriques. With very limited production this...

TASTING NOTES

Named after the gentle traditional method of extraction used to produce it, the Lagar method relies on gentle crushing of the grapes with people’s feet. The pips are not broken and the skins are gently pressed ensuring that not too much tannin is extracted. That being said this is powerful, dense and concentrated; a wine of real class. Intense flavours...

Quinta da Falorca covers 23 hectares in the Silgueiros sub-region of Dão and was established by the Costa Barros de Figueiredo family over 5 generations ago.

Amongst the olive groves, hazelnut and pine trees are four vineyards – Vale das Escadinhas, Barreiro, Esmoitada and Falorca – which cover 13 hectares in total. The vineyards are situated on the steep banks of the Dão river facing south with full exposure to the sun and are planted predominantly with Touriga Nacional, a complex grape best known for Port that has a great potential for ageing. Also planted are Tinta Roriz, Alfrocheiro Preto, Tinta Pinheira and Jaen and the white varietals Encruzado and Malvasia. They have invested heavily over the past 30 years in the vineyards to ensure that they grow absolutely exceptional grapes and the fruits of their labour are evident by the fact they have made it into ViniPortugal’s ’50 Greatest Portuguese Wines’ on several occasions.
