Pombal do Vesuvio DOC Douro, Quinta do Vesuvio

Quinta do Vesuvio
Product Code: QV0819RC

Tasting Notes

Balsamic aromas of woodland and forest floor with resinous notes. In the background there are also hints of wildflowers and black fruits. On the palate, it shows itself powerful and tense, still a little reserved, but reveals an enormous gastronomic profile - a characteristic of ‘Pombal do Vesúvio’. The fine-grained tannins give a touch of spice and underpin the powerful structure of the wine whose acidity provides freshness and balance.

            [Notes2] => 
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => Fresh, floral aromatics; some violet and rose scents with a touch of milk chocolate. The palate offers up a silky, opulent richness, redolent of plums and black cherries, peppered with spicy tannins. A crisp undertone of acidity provides great elegance and balance.
            [MediaNotes] => 
            [ServingSuggestion] => "STARTERS - Cheese puffs, smoked sausages.
MAIN COURSE - Red meat, duck breast, intense-flavoured risotto."			
			

            [WineMakingNotes] => "We had a very dry and mild winter and spring, and by late summer the vines were in need 
of water to keep maturations on track. Fortunately, the virtual absence of rain from May 
to late August was counterbalanced by cooler summer conditions, which attenuated the 
lack of water. Fortunately, some rainfall in late August and ideal conditions through 
September, led to a balanced ripening of the various components of the grapes – reflected 
in the excellent balance between acidity and sugar levels. Yields were very close to average 
after the two very short years of 2017 and 2018. The grapes entered the winery in excellent 
condition with well-balanced ripeness. Freshness and vibrancy are the signature of the 
2019 wines. "

                            [GrapeCharacteristics] => Touriga Franca is more aromatic and lighter bodied than Touriga Nacional, though lacking sufficient intensity and concentration to make it a blockbuster variety. Its origins are unclear and its name misleading, for Touriga Franca is not a French grape. It seems most likely that Touriga Franca is either a mutation, or a crossing of Touriga Nacional and an unknown parent, possibly Mourisco Tinto (Marufo). Either way, Touriga Franca’s plentiful yields have made it a favored and integral component of Douro wine

Winemaking >

"We had a very dry and mild winter and spring, and by late summer the vines were in need of water to keep maturations on track. Fortunately, the virtual absence of rain from May to late August was counterbalanced by cooler summer conditions, which attenuated the lack of water. Fortunately, some rainfall in late August and ideal conditions through September, led to a balanced ripening of the various components of the grapes – reflected in the excellent balance between acidity and sugar levels. Yields were very close to average after the two very short years of 2017 and 2018. The grapes entered the winery in excellent condition with well-balanced ripeness. Freshness and vibrancy are the signature of the 2019 wines. "
