Estate Notes

Symington's Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 1998 was purchased in its original wooden cases and is in excellent condition.

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.

Reviews

"Thick and finely textured Port. Lovely aromas of anise, berries and mint. Full-bodied, very sweet, with silky tannins. Fruity finish." Wine Spectator

"...notes of small black cherries, smoke and sage. The palate is medium-bodied with powdery tannins, the fruits having mellowed over the last few years, less high-toned with attractive black olive notes inflecting the glossy black fruits." eRobertParker.com
