Prova No. 1 Tinto 2015 is a blend of Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz. It's a full flavoured expression of the Douro with good acidity and soft tannins. This was achieved through picking earlier than most other producers; gentle handling through fermentation (i.e. minimal plunging, cool fermentation); and harmonious blending (Tinta Barroca brings vibrancy and red fruits; Touriga Franca brings richness and blacks fruits; Tinta Roriz brings structure and complexity). It's a wine that is drinking beautifully right now.

“Experimentation is a key tenet of winemaking, as one seeks to make better wines from vintage to vintage. The Prova series allows us to bottle stand out wines from such experimentation. Prova 1 and 2 are the first releases and represent the genesis of Quinta da Pedra Alta. In 2015, an opportunity arose for João and Matt to purchase grapes from a vineyard neighbouring QPA, to make their own unique interpretations of Douro reds. Matt and João learnt a great deal from these initial trials, the first building blocks of the approach they would take when Ed and Iz acquired Quinta da Pedra Alta in 2018. Prova 1 and 2 not only showcase initial musings, but also the cracking 2015 vintage. Enjoy!"
