Quinta de la Rosa 2012 Late Bottled Port – 500mL
Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Sousão, Tinta Roriz | Alc: 20% – Smooth and Fruity
Quinta de la Rosa 2012 Late Bottled Port – All our ports are made in the ‘house style’ namely slightly drier without any cloying sweetness that can be associated with some other ports. We also work hard making sure the brandy is well integrated. As with our wines, we search for harmony and equilibrium from our vineyards and we try to enable the grapes to express themselves in the bottle. The La Rosa style is to make well defined wines without too much extraction and tannin.
Jorge is very pleased with the 2012 LBV. It has fabulous dark, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit flavors, a great richness on the palate whilst at the same time exhibiting a wonderful balance and freshness. The port gives immense pleasure for immediate drinking. Please make sure the bottle isn’t kept in direct sunlight otherwise it might oxidize.
“The wine is rich and spicy with layers of dried raisin and prune flavors along with a light touch of acidity. Its ripe fruit is tempered by the bite of spirit that gives the wine a lift as well as adding extra richness. On the dry side of Ports, it is made to be drunk now.” 91 Pts – Wine Enthusiast
