Alves de Sousa Quinta da Gaivosa 2017, Douro, Portugal

Alves de Sousa


Dry red wine, 75cl. Full bodied Touriga Nacional Tinta Roriz Touriga Franca Tinto Cão and others blend from Douro, Portugal. 14.5% ABV. Vegan

This is one of the most iconic and highly rated red wines from the Douro. Aromas of forest fruits, eucalyptus leaf, pine and prunes. Full bodied with great structure, but with the typical balance and elegance of the Gaivosa vineyard. Great complexity, absolutely delicious and with many good years ahead of it.

Producer Profile Alves de Sousa

The Alves de Sousa family has been producing wines for several generations, initially supplying fruit and wine to other port companies. When Domingos Alves de Sousa inherited his family’s quintas in 1987, he began producing wine under the family name. After studying viticulture in Bordeaux and his native Portugal, acquiring additional properties and constructing a modern cellar at Quinta da Gaivosa, he released his first vintage in 1991. Since then, Domingos and his wines have gained critical acclaim. Notably, he was named “Producer of the Year” by Revista de Vinhos in 1999 and 2006; he is the only person to have won this prestigious award twice. Today, Domingos and his son, Tiago, run the estate of five quintas producing both still and fortified wines.
