Harvest begins towards the middle of September each year as pickers work the terraces to harvest the fully ripened grapes. Tha wine matures in casks or in larger wooden vats. The cool ambient temperature of the cellars and its location near the coast is ideal for the lengthy maturation of Port. Port from a single exceptional harvest may be declared as a "Vintage". Bottled after spending between two to three years in wood, the wine continues to m ature in bottle until it is ready to drink In some cases, this may take two decades or more.
Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão
Superb colour, full body and very fine aroma and flavour. As the wine ages it softens and slowly sheds its deep dark colour, gaining in structure and complexity.
Store and Serve Advices:
Vintage 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.
Perfect to drink with cow-cheeses or soft portuguese sheep-cheeses, ice-cream and as a digestive.
