Quinta do Panascal at BTL 2011

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on February 24, 2011 by FladgatePartnershipvisitorscentres

Quinta do Panascal went to the Lisbon’s Internationl Tourism Fair (BTL) and in partnership with the Douro Tourism hosted a tasting of the Panascal Vintage 2008. Check out the pics.

Vintage Quinta do Panascal 2008 – tasting notes:

Opaque purple colour with narrow violet rim. The nose opens with an unrestrained surge of dense concentrated cassis and black cherry laced with a sumptuous confection of molasses and dark chocolate. As it develops, notes of damson and plum emerge from the seemingly impenetrable layer of dark berry fruit followed by heady scents of aromatic herbs and exotic notes of black pepper and sandalwood. On the palate the wine’s rich luscious fruitiness
combines with the close grained and wonderfully integrated tannins to produce an unrestrained eruption of texture and flavour. The opulent black fruit flavours are seemingly endless and are lifted by a zesty freshness on
the finish.

Panascal inspires artists

It is known that Panascal has a dazzling view of the Távora valley. The silence and stunning scenery inspires everyone who comes here.

A few weeks ago we welcomed a group of artists at our visitors’ centre. They were all inspired by this unique terroir and painted beautiful watercolors .

A very special visit organized by Natascha Radchenko from VM Elite Viajes Ltda.
