2015 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port

18.5
"From 140 out of 400 ha of lots planted – varietally, not field blends – when they bought it in 1989. One of the Ferreiras planted monovarietal blocks in the 1970s so they have some of the Douro’s oldest monovarietal blocks. Touriga Franca responds best to vine age. 60% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca and 10% Sousão. North-facing vineyards, so very good in 2015. All foot trodden – very unusual! 1,000 cases.
Blackish purple. Very exciting and heady nose. Extremely luscious nose – pure hedonistic pleasure! Massively ripe nose and then rigorous palate. Cool finish. Such energy and minerally finish. The sweetest wine in this collection but so much tannin that you don’t really see it. So complex and clean. Lots of tannins!"
