Tuella, Symington Family Estates DOC Douro 2018

(1 customer review)

16.95

Deep garnet colour. Fresh aroma of red cherries and raspberries with some plum scent in the background; lovely woodland fragrance. Full assertive fruit character on the palate, displaying plummy and damson flavours, wrapped in a coating of peppery tannins, well rounded by the brief barrel ageing and ending on a beautiful dark chocolate note.

About This Wine...

“an example of why Portugal is considered the new frontier in contemporary wine… Seek out this fruit-laden, light cocoa-toned delight” Tomás Clancy, the Sunday Business Post, 25th February 2018

The Quinta

Quinta do Vesuvio is arguably the most magnificent estate in the Douro valley. Located in the beautiful and austere Port-growing region of the Upper Douro valley, its history dates back to the 16th Century. All of the grapes are hand-picked, with a careful selection being made. Vesuvio is one of the very few estates in the Douro where all of the wines are made using the traditional treading method in granite lagares, among the largest in the Douro valley. In 1989, Quinta do Vesuvio was purchased by the Symington family whose involvement in the production and shipping of Port began more than a century ago. Vesuvio is now ranked as one of the top-tier Vintage Port producers as well as a well respected still wine producer. Over the last decade, Quinta do Vesuvio has amassed an impressive number of awards at international tasting competitions around the world.

    Just returned from a most enjoyable meal with friends. The meal, a simple rump of lamb served with celeriac and potato gratin, salt roasted carrot and roasted shallot was faultless and a perfect foil for this delicious wine.
