Producer Note:


My love for Vintage Port is no secret to those who know me. A sabbatical at The Fladgate Partnership in vintage 2003 gave me a insightful look into Port production at Quinta de Vargellas (Taylors), Quinta do Roeda (Delaforce, Croft) and Quinta do Panascal (Fonseca). A three-hour ‘Corte’ of foot treading was performed to extract colour, flavour and fine tannins. Natural yeast fermentation progressed over 78 hours before pressing then fortification with a blend of white Brandy spirits selected to add character and compliment the base wine. Maturation for 24 month in seasoned French oak with a single racking and regular topping. RS of 80 g/L, which is a touch drier than most Portuguese VP’s, although the apparent sweetness looks much higher. Bottled unfined and unfiltered
