Quinta De La Rosa Tawny Port 10 Year Old - Portugal (500ml)
This port is made in the ‘house style’ namely slightly drier without any cloying sweetness that can be associated with some other ports. The brandy is well integrated.The La Rosa style is to make well defined wines without too much extraction and tannin. Tawny Ports, by their nature are slightly oxidized in style, this means they can be kept open longer than Vintage ports. This Port can be left open for a few weeks when stored in a cool place with a vacuvin or cork.
This is a rich and elegant blend with wonderful aromas exuding the heat of the Douro. On the palate it is complex with powerful dried fruit, figs, honey and almonds with a long pleasing finish. It should be consumed within 2 to 3 years of bottling.
GRAPE VARIETIES: Traditional port varieties, mainly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz.
PRODUCTION NOTES: The Port is made each year in the traditional manner, trodden in granite lagares from grapes grown at Quinta de la Rosa. Kept back a small quantity of the best ports LBV quality and above. It is from these stocks that they blend the 10 year old port. This blending occurs on a regular basis to ensure that stocks are always fresh.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Served chilled as an aperitif or to accompany fois gras or maybe with that special dessert or cheese. Best of all serve on its own and savour the complexity and extraordinary flavours of such a wonderful port. This Port has been lightly filtered and does not require decanting.
