Quinta de Roriz Vintage Port 2007

All the grapes were picked by hand and foot trodden in the Quinta's own stone lagares. On the night after picking and filling the lagares, the grapes were trodden for three hours by a team of 20 men. The following day treading was resumed by a smaller team of about 10 men for a further three hours during the day and then another three in the evening. Once the cap rose, the lagares were worked with 'macacos' by groups of between 4 and 6 men. Each component of the blend was held in the Quinta's wooden vats. The wine has no filtration or fining whatsoever. Only 350 cases of the very finest Port produced at the property in 2007 were selected for bottling.

"The rich mix of cassis and sloe gives weight and depth to the nose. There is a lot of fruit fleshing out the palate, all very black fruited. Although sweet and lush towards the back raspberry shows itself giving a brighter feel on the finish."
Derek Smedley May 2009
