TASTING NOTES

Van Zellers & Co. Vintage Ports are issued from traditional and indigenous hand-picked Red grapes grown in different sub-regions of the Douro. The grapes are foot crushed in old granite “lagares” and ferment in the same “lagares” between 2 to 5 days. When the must reaches the decided residual sugar level, the grape brandy is added to the must to stop the fermentation. After racking and pressing, the newly made Port is then aged, between 18 and 24 months, in old wooden vats, with a capacity between 600 and 10.000 litres. Bottled without any fining, nor filtration, Van Zellers & Co. 2017 Vintage Port has a very deep dark core. On the nose, fruits abound with elderberry, strawberry and raspberry and some floral notes. The wine is structured, chewy and flavorful. A classic Vintage Port that will age beautifully in bottle for well over 50 years.
