Quinta de La Rosa Vintage 2018


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 old dry stone terraces.

Tasting Note: Our Vintage has a beautiful dark violet color and strong aromatic intensity. Complex aroma, black fruit, floral and spicy. In the mouth, it maintains all its intensity without losing any energy or freshness. Well structured, like any classic vintage, it will certainly evolve in the bottle for several decades, but it is so rich and seductive that it is difficult to resist opening the bottle at a young age.

Winemaking: An extremely high-quality Port made from the selected best wines from 2018. The Port was foot trodden in granite lagares for three to four days with careful temperature control, before the addition of brandy (aguadente) to stop its fermentation. The selected wines were aged in large oak ‘tonels’ for 18 months before bottling in May 2020.

Aging Capacity: At least 20 years.

Pairing: A wine with enormous concentration, one immediately appreciates its deep violet colour and great aromatic intensity. Extremely complex, it is dominated by dark berries with exuberant floral elements. On the palate, it maintains its intensity without losing any of its energy and freshness. Well structured like any great declared Vintage port, its evolution is guaranteed for many decades, however, it is so seductive and full bodied that it is difficult to refrain from drinking it immediately.

Winemaker: Jorge Moreira
