Vinous Reverie Notes
Winery: Grape Varieties: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Amarela, Sousão, Tinta Roriz. Our LBV is aged for 4 to 6 years in large wooden vats. The winemaking and ageing methods were chosen to match the selection of wines which make up the LBV: full-bodied red Ports stemming from a single vintage. LBV or Late Bottled Vintage is a category of Port wines which became popular in the 60s, filling the gap between Ruby and Vintage Ports. The extended ageing period of the LBV allows it to show a rounder and mature character –this wine can therefore be enjoyed young, soon after bottling. Tasting Notes: With a wonderfully concentrated ruby hue, this Port shows intense aromas of fruits of the forest, spice and dark chocolate, accompanied by a subtle floral undertone, making this an overall elegant and deeply expressive wine. The palate is fresh and seductive, with good texture and body. Superbly smooth tannins and a lively acidity provide a long, firm and vinous finish. As this is a traditional unfiltered LBV, it is definitely suitable for further cellaring.
