Quinta do Vesuvio DOC Douro 2008


Rich and plush, with a mouth-filling luxurious palate showing very attractive mineral undertones. Displays complex and subtle aromas of eucalyptus, bergamot and mint as well as a discreet hint of violets (very typical of the Touriga Nacional). Wonderful dark plum and blackberry flavours furnish the palate and the long, lingering finish offers traces of dark chocolate, mocha and cream, seamlessly held together by silky tannins and underpinned by very refined, fresh acidity.

About This Wine...

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.
