Winemaking:

Dow’s Vintage Ports are only produced in years of exceptional quality and represent only a very small part of the total company’s production in that year. On average only two or three times every ten years are the weather conditions sufficiently good to allow for the making of Dow’s Vintage Port. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, Dow’s Vintage Ports have been landmark wines in virtually every great year, consistently setting the standards amongst all Port houses. Dow's Vintage Ports are drawn from the companies' finest vineyards; Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta de Senhora da Ribeira. Each property contributes to the Dow’s unique and distinctive style. This 2016 is a small production vintage with just 5.480 cases released to the market.

Grape Varieties:
Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Sousão, Old Vines

Tasting Notes:
Deep color, very floral aroma, with lavender and rosemary in predominance and spice notes, full-bodied taste, rich and very elegant structure, in a magical balance between fruit and tannins, lasting at the end of dry and harmonious mouth. You never forget such a wine.

Store and Serve Advices:
Should be opened two hours before serving and decanted. Serve between 17º and 18º C. Store the bottle on its side, in a cool, dry and dark place.

Food Pairing:
Vintage Ports are after meal drinks. Take them with cheese like Stilton or Gorgonzola. But you can also incorporate them into a meal, combining for instance a Steak au Poivre with a young Vintage.
