This great Vintage Port is made from a blend of over 30 different indigenous grape varieties. All grapes were carefully selected and footed in lagares for 5 days until brandy is added to stop fermentation. The juice was then aged for 19 months in old port barrels, after which the wine was bottled.
This is a well-balanced and delicious vintage port, with aromas of dark plums and mint chocolate. Full and ripe tannins provide maturing capacity for this still young Vintage Port.
Dark red colour with light edge. Complex, broad aroma of dark berries, also some spice. Taste is full of dark berries, smooth, elegant, powerful, good tannins. A little dry at the end. Medium length aftertaste.
Lovely nose, youthful blue fruit. Silky entry, fruit dominates over big tannins; wonderful structure.
Purple color, muted nose that is very floral and with lots of grapefruit. On the palate grapefruit, sweet fruit and bold tannins that just won’t let go. A massive wine. Tannic tingling dominates the finish.
