J.W. Burmester Port Blend Porto Colheita 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Er duftet nach gerösteten Nüssen, dunkler Orangenmarmelade und Karamel. Süße und dicke Aromen fließen ins Glas und am Gaumen entwickelt er weiche, schmeichelnde und einfach traumhafte Nuancen.

In 1730, Henry Burmester and John Nash founded Burmester & Nash in London, a cereal trading company. They moved to Vila Nova de Gaia and in 1750 began shipping port wine to the British Isles and the rest of Europe. The family name originates from the German word 'Burgmeester', meaning 'mayor' - as the family came from the small north Germany city of Moelln. The firm was dissolved at the end of the 18th century, when Henry Burmester Jr. and his two sons, Fredrick and Edward, set up a new port wine company, H.Burmester & Sons. From 1952 onwards, the Burmester Gilbert generation - Helmut and Arnold- took over the business, having founded, in 1962 another port company - Gilberts e Cº. From generation to generation, the Burmesters and Gilberts were noted for their know-how and commitment to the port business, raising the Burmester profile and ensuring the highest level of international recognition.

Loads of aroma and complexity, there is terrific spice on the back palate, some dark fruit with a touch of liquorice. Finishes clean but a little short. And, unfortunately, the whole package is a touch too spirity for mine. Pretty good not genius.

This Port spent many years in oak and many more in the bottle to develop great complexity. Extremely smooth with lots of dried fruits, honey, and vanilla.
