This port has been produced by Rozès’ winemaker Manuel Henrique and consultant Wouter Pienaar. The grapes for the port (Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Roriz and Sousão) come from the old vines, which were on the quinta’s vineyards, when the present owner took over the quinta.
It is a wonderful Vintage Port of the very best quality. Thanks to the perfect weather conditions, Vintage 2013 has obtained a perfect balance combining “rusticity and power” with “elegance and delicacy”. It has a deep intense red (almost purple) colour, delicate and complex bouquet of ripe red fruits – such as blackcurrant and blackberry – and dark chcolate, full-bodied and well balanced taste with firm but silky tannins and a long, persistent and very nice finish.
This port ought to be served chilled and is perfect as an ”after-dinner-drink” or together with strong cheese, chocolate and desserts, but it is also perfect on its own.
It is said that Vintage Port is drinkable after 4-5 years, but only really enjoyable after 15-20 years. This Vintage Port can easily be enjoyed young, but will also develop positively for many years to come.
