Estate Notes

Symington's Quinta do Vesuvio's 1997 Vintage Port was purchased in its original wooden cases.

The Symington Group bought the Quinta do Vesuvio (vineyard) in 1989, which is one of the greatest and most remote vineyard areas in the entire Douro.

Vesuvio makes port in both declared and non-declared vintages where the quality of the fruit is good enough. Fruit is still trodden by foot in stone lagares as tradition dictates, which makes the finest Ports.

Peter Symington chose just 52 pipes to bottle as Quinta do Vesuvio 1995 Vintage Port (a pipe is a 550 litre barrel).

Reviews

"Prune and hints of aniseed and stems. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with soft tannins and a fruity finish." Wine Spectator

"A delicious, forward, dark saturated ruby/purple-colored port, this 1997 reveals copious quantities of jammy, grapy, black fruit flavors intermixed with earth and spice, full body, and silky tannin." eRobertParker.com
