Quinta do Malhô 2011 Douro

$37.90

Quinta do Malhô, covering 5 hectares on the south-facing slope of a nearby valley the Torto, a tributary of the Douro, produces a rich and powerful wine.

Famous for its ancestral production of Porto, the Douro region is now diversifying into magnificent red wines in the same Quintas using unique and exceptional grape varieties such as Tourigas.

Ramos Pinto “Lágrima” White Port

$21.90

This is the sweetest of all Ports. It is the liquid content of the little fermented must (the so-called “lágrima”) and therefore has a fairly high sugar content – around 136 grams per litre.

19.5% Alc./Vol

 

Ramos Pinto Late Bottled Vintage 2013

$26.30

UNFILTERED
LBV comes from one single year and one single harvest.
Whereas its richer cousin, the Vintage, is bottled in the second year, this wine is bottled in the fourth year.
Smoother than the Vintage, more developed and easier to drink. It is a powerful, defiant, full-bodied and harmonious wine.
It is a wine familiar with the flavours of chocolate and cheese. After the bottle is opened it remains at its best for a further 15 to 30 days, if properly stored.
It is a wine that is not filtered and can therefore either be drunk immediately or be left forgotten in a cellar, developing further complexity.

Ramos Pinto Porto 10 Years Quinta Ervamoira

$39.50

Its body and its richness of flavour transport us to the place where it was created – “Quinta de Ervamoira”.
It is in this mystical, biblical landscape that this wine is extracted from the schist, from the silence, for our delight.

Ramos Pinto Porto Tawny

$19.90

Its original red colour gives way to amber tones, its flavour is enriched by a combination of nuts, dried fruits and the aromas of red fruits – cherries, plums, blackberries and raspberries – and a semi-oxidizing harmonious bouquet is formed.

Ramos Pintos Porto 30 Years

$89.50

Harmonising these old wines, which are full of personality and character, is not an easy task. In the tasting room, decisions are very difficult.
Here nature gives place to knowledge, to a serene and wise wine, which, like a kind old man, tells grandiose stories to the young.
Earthly passions give way to volatile, esterified, wood-scented ambiences, free from the schist, from the redness.
It is a dive into an ethereal, limpid world, performed at the unique and constant rhythm of a Port Wine Cellar.

Tawny 20 Years Quinta do Bom Retiro

$59.50

The ageing and maturing experience in the wood change its colour. The red shades give place to brick and yellow colours, to the tones of a sunset.
It is an oenological creation from several different lots. Wines are easy to match when they are young but as they grow older the matching process becomes more difficult. Greater knowledge and fine tuning from both sides is required so that, over time, a perfect and long-lasting harmony is reached. Just as it happens with people.
