This port has been produced by Rozès’ winemaker Manuel Henrique and consultant Wouter Pienaar. The grapes for the port (Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca 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 2015 has obtained a perfect balance combining “rusticity and power” with “elegance and delicacy”. It has a deep purple colour, delicate and complex aromas of ripe fruits with floral notes such as violets and spices, 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.
