Description and Reviews:
This 2018 Late Bottled Vintage Port from Carvalhas divulges a balanced bouquet of mature black cherries, nuances of cistus combined with dark chocolate and hints of wood. Full-bodied, fruity, dense, rich and firm with a great length of flavour, result of the prolonged stay in wood.
The Late Bottled Vintage of Quinta das Carvalhas presents a differentiating Vintage style, through a Port of great quality, produced solely in good years and made from one specific Vintage as shown on the label. For the LBV’s, fermentation takes place in the stone lagares followed by the traditional treading by foot, which, ensures greater yet softer extraction for the necessary concentration. Ageing occurs in oak vats for a period of 4 to six years, on the contrary to a Vintage Port, which ages only 2 years
Quinta das Carvalhas is one of the most emblematic and spectacular properties in the Douro valley. Written references regarding this magnificent vineyard can be traced back to 1759. Enjoying a prominent position on the left bank of the Douro river, in Pinhão, the estate covers the entire hillside facing the Douro river and occupies part of the slopes of the right bank of the tributary Torto river. Carvalhas’ old vines, are a post-phylloxera plantation, which have reached the respectful age of a century old and represent one of the richest selection of ancient indigenous Douro varieties.
