Excellent vintage 1997

Robert Parker 90 Points.

7/10/2016 - XAVIER AUERBACH WROTE: 91 PointsOnly 3,000 cases declareded (just 10% of the annual production of this 408 ha vineyard), foot-trodden in the lagares at the Quinta, 20% ABV. Pristine bottle, cork extracted without any difficullty. Dark and sombre colour, just starting to brown at the edges; lovely and lifted nose, violets and toasted spices, cherry liqueur, deep minerality; the palate is satiny and elegant, beautifully balanced, medium-bodied, juicy and fresh with light but grippy tannins, cherry and milk chocolate flavours; lovely length. A civilised but hardly a spectacular vintage port, fully mature but should age well on the strength of its immaculate balance, drink now - 2032+.

All wines are stored under ideal conditions in our cellars.
