A Vintage Character style blended port of great quality and complexity. Showing beautiful deep ruby colour with plenty of forward fruit, full bodied with a long dry finish. The slight dry finish is typical of La Rosa’s house style. †
A great deal of the wine produced in Portugalís Douro Valley (the homeland of Port) has been controlled by British shippers
for centuries. A few estates remain in the hands of Portuguese families and Quinta de la Rosa is definitely among the best of these.
Their Finest Reserve Port is meant to display the characteristics of an aged Vintage Port; more ruby than tawny, with as much fruit
flavor as non-fruit and a finish that is only moderately sweet. It is the perfect foil for Stilton or a 70% dark chocolate. This Port is
a steal when compared to similar bottlings by the dominant corporate entities of the Douro region.
