10 YEAR OLD TAWNY PORT, Tonel No 12, Quinta de la Rosa (50cl bottle)

Bin:  970

Alcohol percentage:  19.5%

Area:

Warm summers and the steep, granitic slopes of the Douro valley make for low yields and some of the ripest, most intense red grapes in the world. Add alcohol half way through fermentation and you get the lusciously sweet but serious and long-lived style of wine we all know as Port.

Grape variety:

Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz; foot-trodden in granite “lagares” then matured in wood for 10 years.

Producer:

Quinta de la Rosa is run by the indomitable Sophia Bergqvist. The estate was given as a christening present to Sophia’s grandmother in 1906! It was a grape producer for larger houses when Sophia and her father Tim started production themselves.

The style has always been traditional, with foot-treading of the grapes for Port styles (they also make white, rosé and red wines). Their winemaker since 2002 has been the renowned Jorge Moreira.

Old Bridge rating:

Fully mature but (for a tawny) very much on the fruit-driven end of the spectrum.
