Quinta do Portal Vintage 1997


Quinta do Portal Vintage 1997 - Portal 1997 Vintage Port is the result of a great year. After a harsh winter, with snow hitting the vineyards in January. February and March brought hot and sunny days what led to a early bud-burst. In April and May again cold and humid weather, allowing for a even development of the vines. Summer was hot and dry allowing an excellent maturation of the grapes, that were picked on September. The wine starts closed on the nose, but as it opens reveals notes of tobacco, dry plums and spices. Well structured with a complex volume, but quite silky. It finishes very long and very pleasant.
