What happens with an old Port house decides that instead of making a harsh, alcoholic, sticky-sweet, Ruby Port to be drunk by people who've already drunk too much - why not make a really great wine?  That's what's happening here at an estate that uses grapes that really ought to be in 20 Year Tawny or Vintage Port to create simply the best Ruby we've ever tasted!

Using only A-rated, estate-owned, vineyards they create a Ruby that's complex, layered, nutty, and finishes dry and fresh.  There's superb complexity to the nutty raspberry and Bing cherry fruit with layer upon layer of nutty caramel, spice and a gloriously dry, lightly tannic, finish.  It's the kind of wine you come back to again and again and will be especially delicious cool. Keeps nicely for a week or so on the counter and for a month-plus in the fridge.  Do not miss this!

Quinta De La Rosa Tawny NV (500ml) Product #32683 (In Stock)
Quinta De La Rosa Tawny NV (500ml) Quinta De La Rosa Tawny NV (500ml)

Astonishing quality for the money here in a Tawny Port made from grapes most growers would use for Vintage wines.  Port vineyards are graded from F (barely acceptable) to A (best of the best), and most straight Tawny Port comes from C, D and F-rated sites.  Quinta de la Rosa only owns A-rated vineyards and only makes wine from the grapes they grow.  Which is why this bold Tawny is so dark in color and richly delicious to taste.

It's a blend of wines aged three to four years in 500 liter Port "pipes" and blended each year for consistent style.  Dark tawny red in color, it pumps out intense aromas and flavors of dark fruit, rich honey, molasses and toasted nuts.  Rich and sweet in the middle, a bit of burnt orange peel comes up on the finish to provide balance and bite.  Lasts a week or so on the counter and several months in the fridge after opening.  What a treat!
