The wine arrived in good time, with good communications of shipping status along the way, and was well packed to ensure it arrived safely. I was very satisfied and will buy again form Potugalvineyards.

100 pts Robert Parker - A wonderful dark purple rim and great depth of colour characterise the wine’s appearance. The aromatic profile is dominated by superb youthful dark fruit. It is powerful on the initial attack, leading into a fresh mid-palate with beautifully seductive flavours of dark fruit. A great combination of power and elegance, ending in a bold, dry, lengthy and slightly green tannic finish. The length and structure of the 2017 vintage promise a long-lived wine with great ageing potential.

All the fruit for the 2017 Vintage Port were foot-trodden in circular granite lagares with 100% of the stems. The wines were racked soon after harvest, aged in tonéis (large barrels) in the Douro over the winter, and then moved to the cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia in March 2018.

Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Amarela, Sousão, Tinta Roriz

Store and Serve Advices:
Ports are wines that develop very well in the bottle and should therefore be cellared in a dry and cool place where the bottles should be kept laid down. Serve at a temperature of 17 to 18ºC.

Food Pairing:
Perfect with “Queijo da Serra”, Stilton or other blue cheeses. Egg based desserts and “Pão de Ló” (Portuguese sponge based cake).
