Quinta infantado tawny port - $18.00

Quinta infantado tawny port(No rating yet)

A wonderful "hand-made" tawny from Portugal. Shows classic nose of nuttiness and caramel with flavors of rich vanilla, roasted hazelnuts, coffee and raisins. It also brings a fun lightly spicy finish with a bit of acidity to keep it in balance.

The Quinta is based in Pinhão, specifically in the subdistrict of Gontelho where the best Port vineyards may be found. The estate has been owned by the Roseira family since the end of the 19th century and is now managed by brother and sister, João Roseira, vineyard manager/winemaker, and Catherine Roseira, Chief Executive. The vineyards (terraced, very steep and hard-soiled) are worked in traditional methods: all elaboration is done by hand. The grapes are picked by hand and still “trodden”. The winery aims for a medium-dry style - that is, there is less grape brandy or “aguardente” and less grape sugars. 

Their basic Ruby and Tawny Ports are outstanding examples of elegance and richness. The wines are normally from a blend of 2-3 vintages, with the Tawny aged in casks and small “toneis” (slightly smaller than barrique Bordelaise). Their Ruby is dark, rich and plummy with excellent balance of fruit, acid and tannins without an overwhelming sugary or jammy flavor. The Tawny is lighter, but still expressive of fruit with coffee and toffee. Both are superb.

Temporarily out of stock. Sorry about that!

  • Bonavita Red

    #2 Bonavita Red

    Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone. (behind by 7 bottles)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #3 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible. (behind by 5 bottles)

  • Castelfeder Pertico Rosso

    #4 Castelfeder Pertico Rosso

    Such a pretty little wine! Deep, ruby color and a intense aromas of cherries, tobacco, blackberry. Just a little oak to mellow things out . The Cab and Merlot bring just a touch of richness and licorice but the Lagrein has the leading role with its bright red fruit flavors. (behind by 9 bottles)
