Description

The vibrant purple colour of a great young Port has softened to a delicate green-gold after 20 long years in seasoned oak casks under the watchful eye of the master blender and the Dow’s head lodge man. The whole Bomfim vineyard is ‘A-rated’, the highest quality grading conferred by the region’s wine regulatory body.

At this very early stage of its life, it means you are more conscious of the spirit, but this positively unshowy Port plainly has a long life ahead given its deep reserves of fruit and imposing structure. Winemaking: Bomfim’s wines are vinified in the quinta’s fermentation vats which have been successively upgraded over the years and which continue to produce excellent wines. unless we get written confirmation from you that this is acceptable and that you will take full responsibilty if the parcel goes missing. The grapes are normally extremely ripe at the time of picking, a direct result of the low-lying position of the main vineyard. Amber golden in colour, soft and rich on the palate with a fine and mellow fruit flavour blending in with the almond overtones of prolonged cask aging.These are backed by ripe black fruits, a good balance between sweet and dry, with a good shot of acidity. Dow's is a family-owned Port house that has been producing traditional-style Port for more than 200 years, despite war, disease and economic turbulence.

The terroir is so diverse, from mountain to maritime vineyards, hot and dry to cool and green; producing Port, light whites to full bodied reds and delicious rosés.

Two-thirds of the vineyard is now over 20 years old, whilst one third is between 30 to 40 years old. When young Quinta do Bomfim wines are austere, complex and concentrated with very fine peppery tannins. The grapes from these vineyards are vinified at the winery at Senhora da Ribeira, producing some of the very best Dow’s Ports. In the good years when Dow's does not declare a Vintage, the best Ports of Quinta do Bomfim are carefully selected and bottled as Dow's Quinta do Bomfim Vintage Port. The old vines add further to the intensity of the wine as they make up a very large percentage of the vineyard.

Spice and pepper balance the black chocolate flavours and these are very evident in all the quinta’s ports.The very hot climate through the summer at this vineyard results in highly complex and concentrated wines but very low yields. Dow's Quinta do Bomfirm Vintage Port is an exceptional wine that embodies the very best of Portugal's winemaking heritage.
