Vintage Port is the product of a single vineyard in an exceptional year. It is bottled when it is just two years old, still very full and fruity with high levels of tannin. It matures in the bottle, reaching its peak in ten, fifteen or even longer years. But you do not have to wait that long to enjoy it. Vintage ports can be very enjoyable any time, at any occasion.
Quinta da Gaivosa Vintage 2012 - The Alves de Sousa family has been producing wines for several generations, initially suppling fruit and wine to other port companies. When Domingos Alves de Sousa inherited his family’s quintas in 1987, he began producing wine under the family name. After studying viticulture in Bordeaux and his native Portugal, acquiring additional properties and constructing a modern cellar at Quinta da Gaivosa, he released his first vintage in 1991. Since then, Domingos and his wines have gained critical acclaim. Notably, he was named “Producer of the Year” by Revista de Vinhos in 1999 and 2007; he is the only person to have won this prestigious award twice. Today, Domingos and his son, Tiago, run the estate of five quintas producing both still and fortified wines.
This 2012 vintage port has a great balance of sweetness and acidity, edged by perfect tannins and showings of herbs and spice. This vintage shows optimum aging potential.
