Vintage Port
Description: 94 Points (outstanding) Wine Journal ***

Reviews: "This has an ethereal nose, nice lift with secondary aromas beginning to come through, with blackberry leaf, dried orange peel, a touch of walnut and honey. Expressive, if a little too open-knit. There is a hint of glue just in the background but it does not get in the way. The palate is very well balance, quite suave with very fine tannins, with subtle hints of cloves, dried herbs and a touch of capsicum with elegant very supple finish. Excellent. Drink now-2035."

In 1989 the Symington family acquired and invested in the estate, re-planting and expanding the vineyards to 141 hectares (of a 325 ha estate). The property is fundamentally north facing, but with seven hills, seven valleys and altitudes from 130 to 530 metres, has a range of aspects and microclimates.

Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port, 2001


VINTAGE PORT
Description: The 2001 Quinta do Vesuvio is a very dark ruby colour. The Touriga Nacional’s tiny yields brought great concentration to the wine, while the Touriga Franca, due to the good weather during the harvest, achieved perfect ripening, creating wines of great elegance. The Tinta Barroca was very ripe at the time of picking, with a higher than average baumé, producing wines of excellent structure and ageing potential. The old plantings of Tinta Roriz had lower than normal yields in 2001, giving wines with a typical concentration of berry fruit aromas.

Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port, 2006


Vintage Port
Description: The Quinta Do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2006, was 'declared' as a vintage by the shipper.

Classic power with a lovely violet-scented and peppery nose and delicious layers of opulent blackberry fruit within a finely structured tannin framework that ensures very good aging potential. The hot summer of 2006 has added an additional layer of concentration to the traditional Vesuvio velvety richness and depth. This is a very great Vesuvio Vintage Port.

This most beautifully located quinta (farm), down on the water's edge of the River Douro has been revitalised by the Symington family. This is a major 'house' that continues the tradition of treading the grapes in the ancient stone 'lagares' (troughs).

Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port, 2010


Vintage Port
Description: "The Vesuvio is consistently among my pick of the vintage. The 2010 is an extremely inky dark hue, the nose, coolly mineral. In the mouth, it’s positively wedged with minerals, which lend a cool, firm, tensile quality – an iron fist to the velvet glove of wild blackcurrants and lacy floral notes. There’s a hint of bitumen, liquorice and pepper too. Long and layered, with seams on the outside tousled tannins, this is a gloriously powerful, complex and intense wine. Terrific."

Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port, 2011


Capela Vintage Port SINGLE BOTTLE 75cl
Description: The Capela da Quinta do Vesuvio is made in years when truly exceptional wines are produced – the only prior release was in 2007.

The principal grape varieties chosen were again the Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and the Sousão, all of which performed magnificently at Vesuvio in 2011. For the first time ever, Charles Symington included a small parcel of Alicante Bouschet in a Vintage Port. Through ongoing evaluation over the last few years, the Alicante Bouschet has shown itself to be a very impressive variety, contributing structure and colour, due to its intensely coloured berries.

The Touriga Nacional and the Alicante Bouschet were picked and fermented together on one lagar, as were the Sousão and Touriga Franca in early October.
