Vintage Port 2013
95 points, “Seeming full bodied and quite dry in perception when opened, it kept getting sexier with air and time, the sugar and the sweet fruit eventually popping up. At the day mark, it was irresistible and sensationally delicious. This inky black Vesuvio was probably my favourite Single Quinta in this report, although admittedly the beautiful Dow's makes it a close call and may have even more upside. If I had to pick one, though, this would likely be it. This is the sexier and more aromatic of the two.” – Wine Advocate
Packed with dark chocolate, black cherry and plum crumble flavours, Quinta do Vesuvio 2013 is one of Wine Advocate’s favourite Ports of the vintage, making it a stunning gift for any fortified wine lover. And as the experts at Wine Advocate allude to repeatedly, it’s going to make that cheeseboard even sexier.
The Symington family acquired the historic and picturesque Quinta do Vesuvio 30 years ago. Although they’ve made significant investment in this prestigious estate, things are still done very traditionally with 50 treaders employed to stomp the grapes in granite lagares. Established in 1565 Quinta do Vesuvio boasts some of the finest terroir in Douro and shouldn’t be missed by Port fans. The Symington family are trusted hands, being not only the world’s leading producer of premium Port, but also the biggest vineyard owner in the Douro Valley – a UNESCO World Heritage Site of jaw-dropping beauty.
