Pintas Vintage Port 2017

Made from a field blend of over 30 different indigenous grape varieties. All grapes were carefully selected and foot trodden in lagares for 5 days until brandy was added to stop the fermentation. The juice is then aged in an old Port Tonel for 19 months, after which the wine was bottled.

Tasting Notes

This is a well balanced and delightful Vintage Port, with flavors of dark plum and mint chocolate. Full and ripe tannins show the aging capacity of this young port.
