Capela da Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2016 75cl 20% ABV
As with preceding Capela releases, this Vintage Port is inspired by the incredibly low-yielding 90-year-old vines from the Vinha da Capela vineyard, which yielded just 330g/vine and brings an extraordinary complexity and character to the wine.
"Only the third Capela vintage to be released, from 90-year-old vines as well as co-fermented Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet, Touriga Franca and Sousão from neighbouring plots. More sullen and brooding on the nose than the straight Vesuvio wine and it’s deliberately drier in style, although there is a similar underlying ripeness. As well as rich, fleshy cherry and plum fruit notes with dark chocolate intensity, backed by powerful, ripe, broad tannins. Just 3,000 individually numbered bottles produced." Decanter - 97 points
