Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2007

SKU 36978


The extremely low yields of the Vesuvio vineyard produced a wine of unparalleled concentration and richness and with a deep purple colour. Floral aromas of eucalyptus and gum cistus. Intense flavours of very ripe fruit and rich blackcurrant. The combination of all the fundamental elements in this wine will give it great longevity.

Wine SpectatorFascinating aromas of citrus fruits, blueberry and dried flowers, with tar notes as well, lead to a full-bodied, medium-sweet palate, with a black pepper and spice undertone to the rich, ripe berry fruit. Turns chewy and tannic on the finish. So much to come with age in the bottle. Very typical for Vesuvio. Best after 2017. 2,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastWith its delicious juicy character, and blackberry jelly sweetness, this is a ripe wine, packed with fruit. It is sustained by a core of tannins and some herbal bitterness offering a good contrast to all the opulence and richness.

Wine AdvocateThe purple/black 2007 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port offers up aromas of pine forest, menthol, pepper, Asian spices, and blackberry compote. This leads to a youthful, primary Port with gobs of mid-palate fruit, firm but ripe tannins, tremendous depth and concentration, and a succulence which raises it above the crowd. Impeccably balanced, it will evolve for 15-20 years and drink well through 2040.
