Quinta Do Vesuvio Port 1995


item QPort1995


Once the fermenting juice had been run off and fortified, the young wine was left to lie in the Quinta¦s vats and µclosed up¦ very satisfactorily. Peter Symington chose just 52 pipes from the Quinta¦s total production of 385 pipes to bottle as Quinta do Vesuvio 1995 Vintage Port. This young wine should be allowed to age in its own bottle for at least 15 to 20 years from the time it is bottled to achieve its optimum maturity. For those who prefer to drink their Vintage Port young, 4 to 5 years are sufficient.
A ripe and rich 95 boasting a remarkable essence of crushed berries, this is classic Port. Its full-bodied and quite sweet, with the velvetiest of tannins and a long, long ripe fruit finish. At its best after 2008.(WS)
