Vila Nova de Gaia sits on the west coast of Portugal, just underneath the city of Porto. Porto, famously, is the birthplace of port wines, and all the nearby region is a major hub of port production. Vila Nova de Gaia is peppered with port and wine cellars, where tourists can go to taste the drinks before chilling out on the nearby sandy beaches, or visiting local restaurants in the fishing villages.
Fourteen generations of expertise went into Menéres Tawny Port 10 Ans. Alvaro van Zeller, the master blender, built up this port from a blend of wines produced from the Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, and Tinto Cão grape varieties. The grapes are hand-picked and foot-trodden before being transformed into wines and fortified. After blending, the port is aged for 10 years in oak casks.
The ageing process gives Menéres Tawny Port 10 Ans its distinctive personality. Having been expertly blended to create a perfectly balanced base product, the port then matures and evolves, letting the oak wood imbue it with its own particular flavour notes. Its character mellows and softens over time, emerging with an intense complexity and a distinctive palate.
Fernando van Zeller is the fourteenth generation of his family to produce ports – the first recorded family member being one Jorge Fernandes, who appeared in the Livros da Imposição as a port producer in the early 1600s. Menéres is named after Arnaldo Menéres, a family ancestor, and the van Zeller family is the longest unbroken chain of family winemakers in Portugal.More on the Brand
