Tasting Notes: 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.
Winemaking Notes: Blend: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and some Tinta Cão and Barroca, 20% ABV, from Douro, Portugal
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.
About the Winemaker: The Bergqvist Family make this LBV port on their famous Quinta de la Rosa estate. The winery in Portugal combines old heritage with a new winery, which offers accommodation and tasting areas for its guests as well as excellent port production facilities.
