Pormenor Vinhos was established in the Douro in 2013 following the dream of three friends – José Silva, Miguel Cardozo, and Pedro Coelho. The wine bond at the time was somewhat indirect, with older family members who worked both as oak barrel producers and as cork producers. Based in the Douro region, Pormenor wines were launched with the 2013 vintage. With vines ranging from 50 to 100 years old planted at high altitudes, Pormenor (which means ‘detail’ in English) aims to produce wines with moderate alcohol, freshness, and elegance. Even though Pormenor does not consider itself to be a natural wine producer, the winery does not use any kind of non-natural product and most of its work is done in a very non-interventive way to let the natural conditions of each vintage be expressed in the wine.
This wine is a blend of mainly Rabigato, Malvasia Fina and Codega do Larinho, from old vines planted at altitudes of between 600m and 700m in the Douro Superior. After a careful selection at the sorting table, the fermentation and ageing was in stainless steel vats with time spent on the fine lees. Minimum intervention is upheld until bottling in order to keep freshness and minerality, and a good mouthfeel which contrasts with fresh balanced acidity and the typical characteristics coming from the mica-schist soils.
The winemaking motto is followed closely… The Devil is in the Detail!
