Food Pairings for Dow Porto Late Bottled Vintage
Dow’s Dow’s is owned and managed by the fourth generation of the Symington family, Port producers since the 19th Century. The family, whose experience dates back over 100 years, supervises all the vineyards, winemaking and ageing of this wine. Dow’s owns two of the Douro’s finest Quintas, Senhora da Ribeira and Bomfim. They were acquired in 1890 and 1896, making Dow’s one of the first houses to invest in premium vineyards. Late Bottled Vintage Dow’s 2000 Late Bottled Vintage is a wine of a single year but it is not a “declared” Vintage Port. Whereas Vintage Port spends only two years in oak cask and then matures in bottle, LBV is aged in seasoned oak casks and then bottled, when it is between four and six years old. At the time of bottling, Dow’s LBV has completed its maturation and is ready for drinking without the need for decanting. Tasting Notes Excellent deep ruby colour. On the nose brimming with ripe red fruits, combined with spicy and peppery components. On the palate fresh and balanced, full bodied and with a long and lingering finish.
