Tasting Note

One of the finest Douro estates, Quinta do Bomfim is sited in the heart of the Upper Douro Valley, ideally located in an area of transition between temperate and Mediterranean climates. Predominantly south-facing with ample solar exposure, the schist slopes are arranged in vineyard terraces which have yielded Dow’s memorable Vintage Ports for over a century.

All the grapes harvested at the property are taken to the small on-site winery where they are trodden in modern lagares, faithful to the method developed over hundreds of years which continues to make the finest Ports.

The Quinto do Bomfim vineyard makes up the backbone of Dow’s Vintage Port. In the years they don’t declare a full vintage they release the premium fruit from this vineyard as a single vineyard bottling. This Port is excellent value, it’s rich and supple with flavours of black cherry, berry fruit, prune and raisin.

Beautifully packaged in a wooden box making a great gift.

Winemaking

This Vintage Port was produced from grapes of the oldest vines from the Quinta with an average age from between 40 and 60 years old. After a light crushing by a soft stainless steel crusher, the grapes were foot trodden in the old lagares for an average of two days at a temperature of around 20º Celsius with 50% stems. The fermentation started with natural wild yeast and lasted 48 hours with temperatures rising to 28º Celsius. When the sugar level reached 8.5º Baumé the brandy was added to stop the fermentation.

Press

  • 93/100 - Inky hue. Ripe and intense sweet black fruit aromas. Rich, spicy and oaky palate with manicured tannins and fruit concentration. Firm finish.
