Quinta do Vesuvio
Mature Vintage Port

I have followed Quinta do Vesuvio ever since the very first vintage in 1989 and love the way every vintage is so different. Released at a fraction of the price of Dow's or Graham's, it continues to represent superb value. Production is a tiny 965 dozen bottles. Considered to be one of the most magnificent estates in the Douro Valley, Quinta do Vesuvio is the last major property in the region to produce its Ports exclusively using the traditional method of treading in granite lagares – an unbroken tradition since the winery was built in 1827.

2007 was a very successful Port vintage and the Quinta do Vesuvio is now starting to drink beautifully and presented in an attractive hinged wooden case, it makes a great gift. Stock is immediately available for delivery.

2007 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port

£225 per 6 Bot Case, in bond (£291.42 duty & VAT paid)

The nose is somewhat subdued giving a gentle perfume of kirsch, violets, macerated blackberries and cedar complimented by earthy aromas of loam and underbrush. The palate is taut with crisp acidity and a high level of very fine tannins. Just enough richness to flesh-out the palate but not overwhelming. Very long finish. Drink 2020 - 2050+.

A blend of 55% Touriga Nacional and 45% Tinta Franca, picked at 3.80 Baume (the former on 30 year old vines at just 0.7kg/vine). A deep, opaque purple colour. The nose is reticent at first, reluctantly revealing macerated black cherries, blueberry, violets and a touch of rose petals. Very feminine and refined. The palate is medium-bodied, very fine tannins with blackberry, Xmas cake, ginger and a touch of dark honey towards the finish. It has a very attractive sense of energy and tension towards the finish. Good length. A vivacious Vesuvio!
