Post By Richard Lovejoy
Having lived in Portugal many of the wines are known to us and it is great to now enjoy so many that were part of our regular purchases. The extensive range offered by Portugal Vineyards allows us to try others and extend our selection. Portuguese wines are some of the best in the world and it is so good to be able to enjoy them on a daily basis once more. "Portugalvineyards" service is excellent and by carefully judging the quantity to order the carriage costs are quite acceptable.

Winemaking:
This Port is made each year in the traditional manner trodden in granite lagares from grapes grown at Quinta de la Rosa. The Finest Reserve is then blended from our stocks of Port to produce a consistent quality, this blending occurs on a regular basis to ensure that stocks are always fresh. Ports from each year are stored and matured in our own lodge and it is from these stocks that we blend our Finest Reserve. The average age of the port in our Finest Reserve blend is about 6-7 years. Unlike most port shippers, all products are stored and bottled in the Douro (at La Rosa and not Porto), allowing full traceability and ensuring quality from grape to bottle.

Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz

92 points - Quinta de La Rosa Finest Reserve Port

Quinta de la Rosa's Finest Reserve Port is a stunning example of what can be achieved and found in non-vintage port blends. This small port lodge has turned out a terrific, full-bodied, garnet/ruby-colored wine with a big, chocolatey, black-cherry, cedary nose, full-bodied, unctuously-textured flavors, and gobs of fruit and richness, as well as an off-dry, impressive finish. Drink it over the next decade or more.

86 points - Quinta de La Rosa Finest Reserve Port

This is a structured style of Port, which hangs together well, with its ripe fruit and flavors of tar, rosewater and black figs. The tannins and the structure blend combine with sweetness to give an attractive balanced wine. The quinta of la Rosa, owned by the Bergqvist family, is perched dramatically on the north bank of the Douro close to Pinhão.

84 points - Quinta de La Rosa Finest Reserve Port

A lovely wood Port, with soft and luscious character. Medium ruby color, earthy, fruity, dusty aromas, medium body and sweetness, with a round mouthfeel.
