Estate Notes

We are offering three bottles of Symington's hugely concentrated Capela de Quinta do Vesuvio, Vintage Port 2011 in their original presentation wooden case. The ‘Capella’ is only created in exceptional Port vintages and is a terroir-specific Port wine, rather than a house blend.

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

"Incredibly aromatic with tar, licqourice, mint and herb notes, as well as just a trace of pine, backing up the powerful blackcurrant fruit. Concentrated, fresh and minty on the fine palate with rich blackberry and blackcurrant fruit as well as some dense spiciness. An amazing wine of real depth and concentration." Jamie Goode
