Estate Notes

Dow's 1980 Vintage Port is in very good condition for the year.

Dow's Vintage Ports, aged in wood for approximately two years and bottled unfiltered. The house has followed a policy of investing in premium quality vineyards for over a century, and was one of the first port houses to buy quintas (vineyards) in the remote eastern reaches of the Douro Valley at the end of the 19th century.

The backbone of Dow's Vintage Ports is drawn from the company's finest vineyards - the Quinta do Bomfim and Senhora da Riberia – each property contributing to the wine's unique character and class.

"A lovely soft nose of fig, prune and baked cherry. The palate is spicy and supple, not overly complex with a toffee-tinged finish. Quite alcoholic with a spicy finish..."

"A forgotten wine that has always been outstanding. Firm and tight, with raspberry and allspice character. Full-bodied and sweet, with a long, long finish." Wine Spectator
