Ferreira Quinta do Porto Vintage Port 2015

The Quinta do Porto 2015 Vintage is the first estate Vintage since Sogrape Vinhos' viticultural team began restoration work at the vineyard over 10 years ago. For this reason, it is a Vintage with unique characteristics borne from the long process of revitalising this vineyard. Rigorously-selected grapes were carefully vinified to produce a wine of superior quality that meets the high standards expected of Porto Ferreira Vintages. An almost opaque, deep red in colour colour the Quinta do Porto Vintage Port offers an aroma of excellent intensity and complexity, with notes of red fruit and chocolate coming courtesy of good maturation. Additional complex balsamic aromas of resin, pine and tobacco box complement subtle shrubby tones. On the palate, it has excellent volume, firm-but-silky tannins, and a well-integrated acidity, with notes of black fruit combining with a resinous quality. A long and very elegant finish.
