Smith Woodhouse Late Bottled Vintage Port - Portugal

late

Smith Woodhouse is a specialist producer of premium quality Ports. The uniformity of this quality is underpinned by Smith Woodhouse’s own Madalena vineyard from where the wines are largely sourced. This small Quinta (vineyard property) has the highest “A” quality rating and is located in the Rio Torto district, acknowledged as one of the finest Port growing areas. This Late Bottled Vintage Port is produced in the traditional style, from the finest ports of a single very good year. By definition, ‘traditional’ means that after 4 years of cask ageing, the wines are bottled unfiltered and cellared for, at least, an additional 4 years before being released for sale.  Very fragrant nose with aromas of red fruits: strawberry and raspberry as well as nuances of mint and rockrose. On the palate, medium to full-bodied, opulent and packed with rich brambly fruit flavours. Well-rounded peppery tannins render the wine very approachable now whilst suggesting further considerable ageing potential. Smith Woodhouse Late Bottled Vintage can be enjoyed anytime but it can be particularly enjoyable when paired with chocolate desserts or firm cheeses like mature Cheddar and Manchego, but also semi-soft cheeses, including most blue cheeses.
