Description

2012 was a great vintage, which has produced this lovely late bottled vintage port.

Four different traditional port grapes are used in this delicious wine, which is made in the special Quinta de la Rosa style (slightly drier and less cloying than other LBVs).

Quinta de la Rose had a very dry winter/spring that helped the building works but meant that the vineyard suffered as water stocks were not replenished.

Yields were initially low from an uneven flowering and poor weather during this period.

Lack of water meant the grapes were small and concentrated and took longer to mature.

Picking started late (16th September) and as usual Jorge was careful about what to pick and consequently the grapes that came into the winery were in perfect condition.

The skins of the grapes were in great condition so there was little risk of rot.

Yields were 40% down on 2011 and 2010 but these were very abundant years

This 50cl flask shape bottle looks great and makes a lovely gift too!
