Quinta de la Rosa 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

60% old vine vineyard field lend, 40% Touriga nacional Smokey and fairly oaky on the nose with a nutty and expensive aroma. A big wine on entry, round and rolls into the mouth like the changing tide. There are great acids supporting a bright juicy bramble berry punch on entry followed by lots of tannin, dry and a little stern on the palate, though this is so well endowed with fruit that they can be hard to discern. Everything wraps up in a long powerful finish filled with nuanced bay leaf and vanilla notes accenting handfuls of crushed berries and hints of mint and balsam, and a mineral finale. I like this very much. 92pts

The Bergqvist family have been making port since 1815. Quinta de la Rosa was given as a christening present for Claire Feuheerd, Sophia's grandmother, in 1906. The family port shipping company, Feueheerd, was sold in the 1930s but La Rosa was kept and run by Sophia's grandmother, Claire. In 1988 Sophia and her father, Tim Bergqvist, decided to restart the family business and launched Quinta de la Rosa as a top quality port producer onto the market place. Starting in the early 1990s, the Bergqvist family were one of the pioneers in taking red wine production in the Douro region seriously. Quinta de la Rosa's red wine has won many accolades in the press and is sold in many prestigious restaurants and wine stores around the world. For the last 5 years, the Bergqvist family has also been making their Vale da Clara wine, buying in carefully selected grapes from nearby properties. The wine differs distinctly from the La Rosa wine produced - it has more fruit and less oak flavors. Read less

Noten von Veilchen, Orangenblüte und Lavendel, später Brombeere, Holunder und Kräuter wie Thymian und Estragon zeugen von einem charaktervollen, finessenreichen Wein. Am Gaumen stellt man eine erfreuliche Frische und Eleganz fest, die sich mit viel Saftigkeit und im intensiven Geschmack nach Amarenakirschen, Johannisbeeren sowie Minze und Zitronenzeste ausdrückt.
