Quinta de La Rosa


Quinta de La Rosa



Description: The jewel in the crown. Its freshness and minerality make it appetizing as a young man but it can age for decades.

Grape Varieties: Traditional port varieties, mainly Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca with some Sousão from the older dry stone terraced vineyards at La Rosa.

Tasting Note: Typical aromas of a young Vintage port from a fresh year, very aromatic with intense black cherry liquor flavours, chocolate and the wild dog rose you find in the Douro hills. On the palate a seductive and full bodied port, perfect to be drunk early but also with sufficient tannins to guarantee its structure and longevity. The tannins are balanced and not too evident so they don’t block the aromas and flavours in the initial phase of the port’s life. This 2014 vintage is in an ideal phase for immediate consumption for those who like their vintage ports young and vibrant but it will develop and mature well in the bottle for the next few decades.

Winemaking: The Port was trodden by foot in granite lagares for three to four days with temperature control. The more complex lotes of 2014 were kept for 18 months in wooden oak 25 pipe tonels before being blended. The port was bottled in July 2016.

Ageing Capacity: At least 20 years.

Pairing: The 2014 Vintage will age well for many decades but is also a lighter style vintage port that can be appreciated when young. Drink as a digestif with cheese, chocolates or on its own. Remember to decant the port after it has thrown a deposit. This will happen after it has been a few years in bottle.

Winemaker: Jorge Moreira
