      Winemaker Notes

      All Quinta de la Rosa's ports are made in the ‘house style’ namely slightly drier without any cloying sweetness that can be associated with some other ports. They also work hard making sure the brandy is well integrated. As with their wines, Quinta de la Rosa searches for harmony and equilibrium from their vineyards and try to enable the grapes to express themselves in the bottle. The La Rosa style is to make well defined wines without too much extraction and tannin.

      Aromas of mature fruit, violets and spices characterize this vibrant LBV. An exceptionally complex wine - rich but in great harmony, full of life and very long. The port gives immense pleasure for immediate drinking. Please make sure the bottle isn’t kept in direct sunlight otherwise it might oxidize.

      This Port has not been filtered and might throw a light sediment but should not require decanting. Delicious with dessert, especially chocolate, cheese or on its own.

      This is a richly smooth LBV. Superripe black fruits, dried fruits, sultanas and spice are brought together in a generous, full-throated Port. Its tannins are just enough to suggest it could age further, although it is enjoyable now.

      Wine Spectator
      This offers a mix of anise, ganache, plum cake and fig paste rolled together, carried by lively, brambly grip through the gutsy finish. A flash of mint adds range. Drink now through 2022.

      Quinta de la Rosa, Portugal
      Quinta de la Rosa Winery Video

      Quinta de la Rosa was one of the pioneers of making and selling table wines and olive oil in addition to port directly from the estate. These products are produced, matured and bottled on the Quinta and not in Vila Nova da Gaia as is the case with other shippers. It can be argued that this helps give our ports a dry and stylish nutty flavour. A combination of the best of the old with the new, treading in granite lagares and using stainless steel and temperature controlled technology, together with careful handling of natural materials (such as oak casks for the table wine and large old tonels for the port), ensures that wines of the highest quality are made. As everything is grown, made and bottled on the estate, Quinta de la Rosa is one of the few true "Single Quintas"; it is not a second brand used by most large shippers for their "off Vintage" port years.

      The home of Port—perhaps the most internationally acclaimed beverage—the Douro region of Portugal is one of the world’s oldest delimited wine regions, established in 1756. The vineyards of the Douro, set on the slopes surrounding the Douro River (known as the Duero in Spain), are incredibly steep, necessitating the use of terracing and thus, manual vineyard management as well as harvesting. The Douro's best sites, rare outcroppings of Cambrian schist, are reserved for vineyards that yield high quality Port.

      While more than 100 indigenous varieties are approved for wine production in the Douro, there are five primary grapes that make up most Port and the region's excellent, though less known, red table wines. Touriga Nacional is the finest of these, prized for its deep color, tannins and floral aromatics. Tinta Roriz (Spain's Tempranillo) adds bright acidity and red fruit flavors. Touriga Franca shows great persistence of fruit and Tinta Barroca helps round out the blend with its supple texture. Tinta Cão, a fine but low-yielding variety, is now rarely planted but still highly valued for its ability to produce excellent, complex wines.

      White wines, generally crisp, mineral-driven blends of Arinto, Viosinho, Gouveio, Malvasia Fina and an assortment of other rare but local varieties, are produced in small quantities but worth noting.

      With hot summers and cool, wet winters, the Duoro has a maritime climate.

      Port is a sweet, fortified wine with numerous styles: Ruby, Tawny, Vintage, Late Bottled Vintage (LBV), White, Colheita, and a few unusual others. It is blended from from the most important red grapes of the Douro Valley, based primarily on Touriga Nacional with over 80 other varieties approved for use. Most Ports are best served slightly chilled at around 55-65°F.
