Waitrose, No1 Quinta de la Rosa Vintage Port, Douro Valley, Portugal, 2017
(at Waitrose Cookery School, Finchley Road, London, 13 Oct 2021)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2030
This 2017 vintage Port is made for Waitrose by Quinta da la Rosa, a small estate in the heart of the Douro. It was a dry, hot year, but a cooler spell during harvest helped this wine retain freshness alongside the hedonistic plummy fruit flavours and spicy, fruit cake notes. Eminently drinkable.
