Vintage Port

Produced from our best grapes from the 2011 harvest, this Vintage Port is the result of the best selection of what nature produced. It is a carefuly crafted Port and only small quantities are made. Bottled 2 years after the harvest, it promises to age very well in bottle, and your patience will be rewarded.

2011

TASTING NOTES

Colour

Dark purple color

AROMA

Deep nose showing dark-red and black fruits combined with a hint of spices.

PALATE

On the palate, the dark fruit flavors are sustained by a robust, velvet structure. The very long and persistent tannins help the cacao notes in the finish to stand out.

Winemaking Details

Viticulture: The 2011 harvest was close to perfect in terms of weather, which is one of the most important variables in winemaking. A long and cold winter with plenty of rain created water reserves in the soil, followed by a warm spring and a mild start to the summer. A couple of showers in mid August and in early September then helped restore the vines. After the last rain, it was dry, perfect for the harvest, which started on September 5th. Fermentation: Totally de-stemmed grapes followed by a slow fermentation with temperature control up to 26ºC degrees. Unfiltered. Bottled in April 2013. Winemaker: Claudia Quevedo
