Overview: Vintage Ports only make up 2% of all Port production in Douro Valley. They are singular examples of exceptional harvests and this one come from the estate’s best vineyards, composed of century old vines and dozens of local varieties that grow together, adding complexity and balancing each other out in the delicious final product.
Varietals: Centenary vines
Tasting notes: An intense ruby, this Vintage showcases very mature, dark fruits and berries with some pepper and spice nuances. This slightly dryer-style Port engages a balanced dance between tannins, prunes, wood and balsamic notes held up with nice acidity.
Enjoy with: Blue or aged cheddar cheese or dark chocolate and black fruit desserts.
