Dow’s Senhora da Ribeira is a single-vineyard blend from a small estate with just 25 hectares of vines. It benefits from the warmth of the Douro Superior and creates wines using a blend of Touriga Franca Touriga Nacional and Sousão. Opening these bottlings you can expect to discover aromatic with opulent notes of blackcurrant blackberry violet and plum on the nose powerful black-fruit flavours and rich dark chocolate a minty medicinal edge and undertones of thyme crushed rocks rosemary peppery spice and coffee. Each one is powerful beautifully balanced and built to age but it’s hard to keep your hands off them especially when paired with chocolate desserts and punchy blue cheeses like creamy Stilton or Roquefort.
For over two centuries the name of Dow has been associated with some of the finest Vintage Port from the vineyards of the Upper Douro Valley. Dow’s typically produce superbly concentrated wines that are intense and tannic when young maturing towards a superlative racy elegance with age and scented with violet and mint aromas. Dow’s attractive and distinctive drier finish is the recognisable hallmark of the wines from this great Port house and has won the producer a loyal allegiance of advocates.
Dow’s – owned by the Symington family – ranks amongst Port’s most famous names and is renowned for its powerhouse style.
