The Clos line at Quinta do Javali demonstrates the purity, respect and uniqueness of the expression of the Fonte do Santo terroir, in Ervedosa do Douro, from the vineyard to the glass.
Purity in soil work, with annual crops patiently carried out with horses. And purity in wines, resulting from fermentations with minimal interventions, which can take place in mills, used barrels or even in a concrete vat, with a rare and innovative spherical shape, exclusively built with the incorporation of a certain amount of soil from the source's own terroir of the Fonte do Santo.
Respect for agricultural work throughout the vegetative cycle of the vine, through the application of biodynamic viticulture principles (lunar calendar, flower days, fruit days, root days, leaf days, biodynamic preparations, plant macerations, ...).
Uniqueness in the location of the Fonte do Santo vineyard, bounded by old stone walls, in the image of a Clos, and also surrounded by bushes and forest, rich in biodiversity. Clos da Fonte do Santo also gathers olive trees, several fruit trees, a natural water mine and even shale rock formations, thus creating a unique ecosystem.
Wine created from the Biodynamic Viticulture Concept. Light ruby color, such as the color of the red cherry. Exuberant and appealing nose. The aromas of red fruits dominate with a balanced maturation, without being exaggerated. Evidence for the notes of red cherry, gooseberry and raspberry. In the mouth, it is admirable the acid freshness in a red wine of the Douro, which positively reflects the influence of the location of these vines on a cooler terrain. The fruity notes, which are allied to the vibrant minerality, provide a proof marked by lightness.
