Quinta de la Rosa, 10 Year Tawny Port
- Bottle Size
- Grape Blend
- Wine Type
The Bergqvist family has been involved in the Douro’s port trade since 1815, with the Quinta de la Rosa estate gifted to current owner Sophia Bergqvist’s grandmother Clara as a christening present in 1906. The winery rose to become one of Portugal’s top quality port producers over the course of the next 90 years – but it was in the 1990s when its prowess as a still wine producer in the region became evident. Throughout this decade, Quinta de la Rosa became a pioneering force for still winemaking in the Douro, helping propel it to world recognition and renown.
As with all of their ports the 10 Year Old Tawny is fermented slightly longer to guarantee a dry finish and they work hard to ensure that the brandy is well incorporated. Expect notes of powerful dried fruit, including apricot and figs, along with honey, almonds and orange peel.
