Touriga Franca,Touriga Nacional,Tinta Roriz,Sousão
This wine is the deepest crimson, almost opaque in colour. It displays great intensity, complexity and harmony on the nose. A prevalence of floral notes, especially rock-rose and heather as well as warm cedar hints from its time in oak. Spices such as pepper, with an undertone of curry, as well as some mineral notes are also in evidence. On the palate it has a lively attack, with balanced acidity, and robust and distinct tannins. Red fruits and spices, especially pepper, come to the fore during tasting. It has a long and supremely well-balanced finish.
Store and Serve Advices:
The bottle should be kept horizontally, under a constant temperature of between 16ºC-18ºC and sheltered from intense light. Over time Vintage Porto develops a natural deposit, and it should be opened with care and decanted prior to serving, ideally at between 16ºC-18ºC. Once the bottle has been opened, it should be enjoyed within 1-2 days.
When mature, it is ideal on its own or with dried fruits. It goes well with rich cheeses such as Queijo da Serra.
