Quinta de La Rosa Vintage 2016


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: Opaque colour. Very rich, dark chocolate aromas with some black cherry and mature fruit coming through. There is also a pleasing freshness to the port originating from its floral and cistus (rockrose) bouquet. The Quinta de la Rosa Vintage 2016 is a powerful wine with much potential but at the same time elegant and generous on the palate. Full of flavours, very complex with fine tannins that gives the wine a nobility and persistence. A great vintage made to give pleasure now and in 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 2016 were kept for 18 months in wooden oak 25 pipe tonels before being blended. The port was bottled in August 2018.

Aging Capacity: At least 20 years.

Pairing: The Vintage will age well for many decades but 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
