From the Winery:
"HARVEST & VINTAGE NOTES
Douro DOP; VINEYARD: Quinta do Porto
The grapes are hand harvested and softly crushed after partial destemming. The wine was fermented in lagares and on the grape skins, allowing for their important flavor compounds to be extracted. This is done under temperature control so that the winemaker can keep an eye on the alcoholic fermentation to ensure that the addition of aguardiente (grape spirit) is added at just the right time. This addition of aguardiente halts the fermentation and is the key to creating Port wines sweetness. After fermentation, the wine is aged in wood. The final wine is a blend of multiple vintages of oak aged reserve wines, that have been aged 8 to 15 years.
Good depth of color. The best tawnies show some good fruit on the nose. The palate is rich, long and deep. Serve at room temperature or on the rocks. Can be kept open for several months."
