Quinta do Pégo 2016
Vintage Port
Douro
Portugal

Characteristics

The grapes for this port (Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Sousão) come from the old vines, which were on Quinta do Pégo's vineyards, when the present owner took over the quinta. Thanks to the perfect weather conditions, Vintage 2016 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

Dense and intense aromas of black fruits 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 long, persistent and very nice finish.

Ageing

2-3 years in oak casks.

Serving suggestions

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.
