K&L Notes

Quinta de la Rosa is one of the few independent and family-owned Port houses still in operation today. They own 55 hectares and produce primarily table wine and olive oil. They only make about 5,000 cases of Port wine each year from estate-grown A-graded vines. While most Port wine produced at the Ruby level use vines graded B to D from lower down the Douro river, Quinta de la Rosa uses A-graded vines, making their Ruby exceptionally unique. A blend of 3 to 4 year-old stocks aged in a mix of stainless steel and huge barrels, this is deep purple in color and loaded with fresh berry fruit flavors. It has a mild sweet tone but never goes to the heavy side of Ruby. (Keith Mabry, K&L Wine Merchants)

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.
