Quinta do Pégo Vintage Port 2017

Characteristics

The grapes for this port (Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Sousão) come from the best parcels at Quinta do Pégo and all the grapes are from vines being from 30 to over 100 years old. Thanks to the perfect weather conditions, Vintage 2017 has obtained a perfect balance combining rusticity and power with elegance and delicacy. It is a wonderful Vintage Port of the very best quality representing vast character, exuberance and great potential for ageing.

Colour

Deep dark red colour.

Aroma

Delicate and intense aromas of black fruits, spices and raisins as well as balsamic notes.

Taste

This very elegant port presents great volume in mouth and good acidity with pronounced and silky tannins followed by a nice, long and very persistent finish.

Ageing

2-3 years in oak casks.

Serving Suggestion

This port is perfect as an ”after-dinner-drink” or together with strong cheese, chocolate and desserts, but it is also perfect on its own. As young and powerful it is also perfect for a good pepper steak. Port should be enjoyed chilled.
