Quinta do Canhoto in Albufeira has belonged to the family since the 1950s, and its vineyards overlooking the sea grow there. In 2009 the family decided to reformulate the vineyards and build a cellar from scratch, in order to gather the ideal conditions to produce their own wine. Today we know it as “Esquerdino” – the leftie. It currently produces 6 varieties, this Esquerdino being Touriga Nacional, the noblest variety in Portugal, capable of producing excellent varietal wines.

The berries have a thick skin and the variety adapts to different climatic conditions. However, it prefers places with high solar incidence and heat, in addition, the maritime climate with a strong Mediterranean influence, the strategic planting of rows creating wind circulation corridors and controlling the sun exposure of the vines makes it possible at Quinta do Canhoto to achieve a excellent balance and quality. Here, the clay-limestone soils allow the production of wine with elegant tannins, very good acidity and without excessive alcohol potential (13.5%).

Scarlet tulip red color, slightly floral fruity aroma, red fruits and notes of violets, bergamot and dried Mediterranean herbs. Its structure is quite firm, with balanced and enveloping acidity, with some minerality and a very persistent and elegant finish.
