Quinta de Roriz Vintage Port 2011

Situated on the South bank of the River Douro between the villages of Pinhao and Tua, the Quinta forms a natural amphitheatre with a variety of exposures from West-facing to North-facing. The Quinta is planted with most of the classic Douro varietals including a dominant proportion of Touriga Franca (21%) and Touriga Nacional (28%), but there are also small plantings of more unusual varietals such as Sousao (2.3%) and the late ripening Tinta Francisca (8.6%). A peculiarity of the soils of the Quinta is the presence of tin and gold tailings from the old mine workings at the top of the estate, lending a distinctive minerality to the estate's Ports. 

Just 4,200 bottles of 2011 Quinta de Roriz Vintage Port have been produced from grapes selected from particular parcels of mature vineyard at the Quinta.
