Description

A wine of exceptional quality made with the best grapes of a single harvest. A Vintage declaration occurs when producers believe that all conditions are gathered to release the highest standard of quality. On average, fully declared 2 to 3 times per decade, the wine must be bottled between the 2nd and 3rd year after the harvest. A wine built to age for decades reaching full maturity after 20 to 40 years of bottle aging.

Tasting Notes

A classic vintage, concentrated, long lasting and complex. Declared by all the major Port houses. Very well structured and balanced wines, marked by strong tannins, these wines have a great elegance and staying power. The nose is extremely elegant, with traces of cinnamon giving an attractive tone. Black cherry, raspberry, pine, spearmint paint the backdrop and prelude to a spectacular mouth of power and delicious acidity.
