90 Points & Best Year’s Port goes to the Porto LBV 2011!!
Wine & Spirits awarded Quinta Do Pessegueiro’s Porto LBV 2011 with 90 Points and is one of this Year’s Best Port!
Located in the center of the Douro Valley, the cellar of Quinta Do Pessegueiro mixes the traditional and quality methods of wine production with the latest, most sophisticated equipment and innovation. Appropriately, to preserve the wine as long as possible, the use of pumps has been banned from the wine harvest to the casks room, as well as the period of vinification in vats. The wine is aged as naturally as possible.
“In the mode of a lighter Vintage Port, this is a rich wine with formidable schist tannins and baked-cherry sweetness. Some tarriness and volatility in the finish suggest it’s best to drink this over the next year or two, decanting it toward a gentler smokiness to serve with Serra da Estrela cheese.” – Wine & Spirits Magazine
