Quinta de la Rosa Passagem Reserva 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Hottest dried part of the Douro Powerful balsamic, animal and gamy aromas are well balanced by nutty, chocolate oak notes on the nose. This shows power and elegance in a vibrant style even if the fruit does have a decidedly roasted edge. Textural this is quite fine, bright, juicy and transparent, it is a big ass wine streaked with medicinal, balsamic and briary accents, finishing with power and vibrancy, dusty, with a hint of pomegranate in all the depth of dark berry, plummy fruit. A statement wine, and possibly better to taste than to have at the table, but quite impressive none the less. 93pts

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
