Quinta de La Rosa Vintage 2015


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: The 2015 Vintage port is extremely pretty and agreeable, very similar in style to the 2011s but without the same concentration and structure. Floral aromas together with dark cherry and wild berry fruit on the nose. On the palate the port has a pleasing freshness and attractive balance and elegance. A good tannin structure without being overbearing, the port exhibits the usual cherry, chocolate and slightly herbal flavours. This 2015 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 2015 were kept for 18 months in wooden oak 25 pipe tonels before being blended. The port was bottled in July 2017.

Aging Capacity: At least 20 years.

Pairing: The 2015 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 in bottle a few years.

Winemaker: Jorge Moreira
