Quinta do Infantado Reserva Port

SKU #1079788

Quinta do Infantado has been a leader in estate-bottled Ports since 1979. The estate is based in the subdistrict of Gontelho (Pinhão) where the best Port vineyards are located. These steeply terraced vineyards composed of hard rocky soils are farmed and worked by hand in keeping with tradition.The grapes are picked by hand and crushed by food. The NV Reserva is a "vintage character" Port that is made mainly from a single undeclared vintage with amounts from other casks blended in to make a fully accessible, rich, harmonious wine that truly exemplifies the Vintage style. Look for aromas and flavors or dried plum and dark chocolate, along with hints of smokey spice and caramel. This complex, structured Port would make an excellent partner to some Stilton Blue!

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
Sub-Region:

Port

- Port is a fortified wine made by stopping the fermentation with brandy. The result is a heavy sweet wine, most often red, that is dense, rich and high in alcohol. Port is made all over the world with some great results in Australia and South Africa, but the most famous of these dessert wines come from Portugal. The great port houses (or lodges) are located along the Duoro River on the steep slate slopes high above the valley floor. There are several styles of port, including Ruby, Tawny, Vintage Character, Late Bottle Vintage, Colheita, and Single Quinta. Vintage ports are made in special years that the houses declare.
