Canuco means "small child" in Portuguese. So the philosophy for this wine was to harvest from younger vines  and to convey a youthful energy with round tannins and beautiful fruit while transmitting the freshness and elegance that the Douro region is known for.

Pormenor Vinhos is the dream of owner and winemaker, Pedro Coelho to free himself from the bounds of tradition in the Douro Valley. Pormenor translates to “details” and launched with the 2013 vintage rooted in a fierce belief of what Pedro did not want from his wines: high alcohol, extraction, new oak. Instead, Pedro is locked in on the potential for Douro wines to show freshness, restrained alcohol, and elegance. One of the details Pedro insists on to delivery on this vision is old vines. With vines ranging from 45 to 100+ years primarily in the Douro Superior, he has found and secured incredibly rare vineyard material. Another important detail is high elevation vineyards which help combat the natural heat of the valley. He works with indigenous varietals only and fermenation is done through native, wild yeasts.
