2009 Quinta Do Vesuvio Vintage Port


As 2009 was a particulary hot year, this favoured the cooler conditions of vineyards above 250 metres of altitude.

The Vesuvio 2009 Vintage lot was made up of 40% Touriga Nacional from Block 112 and 142 (which is situated at a considerably higher altitude than has normaly been used in the Vesuvio blend) and which produced a wine of fantastic colour and balance.

Tasting Note: Stemmy and herbal on the nose (a keynote of the Sousão varietal); inky black, powerful and very substantial. Mouth-filling, brambly fruit invades the palate, some dark chocolate tones - intense, concentrated, muscular and brooding. An impressive wine destinated to develop magnificently over the next decades.

Blend: Touriga Nacional, Sousão
