Quinta de la Rosa’s LBV port is perfectly blended with good fruit flavours. You’ll notice its indulgent aromas typical of a port, but it’s slightly lighter for a softer taste.
Recommended food pairings
A late bottled vintage port is meant to match with a creamy, soft blue cheese. Instead of a Stilton, why not try Beauvale: an indulgent, full-fat, cow’s milk cheese? We’ve chosen it to pair with this port in our virtual tasting events as it’s award-winning; Beauvale was crowned Best Blue Cheese at the 2017 British Cheese Awards.
There’s a lovely grape blend here: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and some Tinta Cão and Barroca.
There’s no lengthy ageing needed for a late bottled vintage, so you’ll get some of the tastes of a vintage port without the long process.
