Tasting Notes

Very deep-colored crimson center, just beginning to fade along the rim. Bright, intense aromatics of fresh, red fruits, eucalyptus and fragrant rose scent (typical signature of Touriga Nacional). Substantial and weighty on the palate with fleshy, plummy wild berry fruit and chocolate nuances. While full and assertive, the fresh fruit flavors are balanced by the smooth texture which the combination of wood and bottle ageing (4 and 6 years) has given the wine.

Vineyard Notes

Quinta da Madalena

Production Notes

This Late Bottled Vintage Port is produced in the traditional style, from the finest ports of a single very good year. By definition, ‘traditional’ means that after 4 years of cask ageing, the wines are bottled unfiltered and cellared for, at least, an additional 4 years before being released for sale. It is this bottle ageing that allows the wine to develop outstanding style and complexity, resulting in a deep colored Port with rich mouth-filling flavors of ripe fruit balanced by notes of black chocolate and peppery tannins.

Winemaker Notes

Smith Woodhouse’s traditional method of maturation, marrying both wood and bottle-ageing, distinguishes it from most other LBVs currently available.

Other Notes

Tradition Late Bottled Vintage Ports contain sediment. Move to an upright position to let the sediment fall to the bottom of the bottle. Open. Pour the wine gently into a decanter and stop pouring when you see sediment moving into the bottle neck.
