Dona Maria Late-Bottled Vintage Port (375ml)

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Our focus at present is on ‘new wave’ Vintage Ports. Newness in respect of the Douro Boys’ attachment to the single quinta concept, but stylistically, too: these VPs drink exceptionally well as young wines. As a rule of thumb, they are great drinks until 5 years’ age. Then they need to cellar for 10+ years. Easy! They are extraordinarily good value.

With just under four years in cask, this unfiltered VP material shows gun-metal length, elegance and restrained power. Blue-note, sarsaparilla fruit has lovely tannin definition, becomes more interesting once open.
