    The dramatic Douro Valley upriver from Portugal’s second city, Oporto, has been dedicated almost entirely to port production but is now also a large producer of red wines.  This remote valley has viciously cold winters, incredibly hot and dry summers and the slopes so steep (up to 60 degrees) that few plants can grow. But deep-rooted vines, often on painstakingly constructed terraces, manage to burrow their way through the rock to such water as there is. Yields are very low and the grapes naturally very concentrated in colour, tannin and sugars to ferment into alcohol. All of which makes for some exciting red wine.

    The Maçanita Vinhos project was created in the Douro by siblings Joana and António Maçanita back in 2011. Having worked together in over 14 wineries around the country, they wanted the new project to reflect their experiences and aspirations; lots of laughter, lots of arguments and an ethos of questioning the existing way of doing things.  The wines of Maçanita express this spectacular landscape through indigenous grape varieties from old vines and a non-interventionist approach.

    The Douro Tinto is a concentrated violet ruby color, has an intense nose, with ripe fruit and floral notes, combined with the aroma of red fruits. Full bodied, round and with great length.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
