Description

Quinta do Portal Plus 2003 Vintage Port

Grapes: 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Tinta Roriz, 30% Tinta Barroca/Touriga Franca, hand picked

Based in the Pinhao Valley, Portal 2003+ Vintage Port grapes come mainly from a young parcel of Touriga Nacional at Quinta dos Muros. The fruit was so exciting that it was decided to blend it in this very unique Port.

For the first time Quinta do Portal declared 2 different Vintage Ports in the same year. The 2003+, like the classic, was considered one of the best of the year. In fact, both of them were among the best 5 wines of 2003 as per Jancis Robinson!

It has great ripe fruit, but more fresh and young, allied to its powerful tannins, making it dense, intense, but smooth and very pleasant.

The production was about 1/3 compared to the classic bottling.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"Potentially one of the best wines of the vintage, this is an extraordinary performance from a producer not previously noted for making such high-quality Vintage Ports. The wine—a special selection that at this stage, has no name—has great ripe fruit and huge tannins combined to make a dense, intense wine. It is dark, brooding and rich. There are also layers of dryness which shows the aging potential of this great wine."

95/100 points, Roger Voss, WINE ENTHUSIAST, November 2005

"Warm, spicy, chocolatey nose shows sweet pure fruit. Lush but well defined. The palate shows lovely concentration with expressive fruit and nice bright, spicy tannic structure. Real depth and structure here with nice complexity."

94/100 points, Jamie Goode, September 2008

To be enjoyed with dark chocolate or blue cheeses,
