Description

This 2015 Vintage Port Wine from Burmester Port is a medium bodied port that will be ready to drink in the next 10-15 whilst continuing to mature and evolve excellently for another 20 plus years. Comprised of ripe red and dark berries this wine is pleasantly sweet and smooth with good acidity and fine tannins at this early stage.

The vineyard of Quinta do Arnozelo is situated on the southern bank of the Douro river, between the small towns of São João da Pesqueira and Vila Nova de Foz Côa. This is in the prestigious upper reaches of the Douro demarcated wine region, the aptly named Douro Superior. In addition to its favourable geographic location, it has an ideal micro-climate, both of which contribute to the superior quality of its grapes and other produce. The vineyard has 200ha, comprised of vines, olive trees, orange trees and forest (which harbours a large variety of the region’s species).

Reviews

Beautifully ripe red and dark berry fruits and violets in the nose and the mouth. Pleasantly sweet and smooth. Good acidity and fine tannins at this early stage. Medium bodied and a lovely Port wine. Will mature and start drinking over the next 10-15 years and continue to evolve for another 20 years plus.

Mark Squires- Wine Advocate- Aug 2017

The 2015 Vintage Port Quinta do Arnozelo, a single quinta Port, is an equal blend of Touriga Nacional (50%) and Touriga Franca (50%), coming in with 102 grams per liter of residual sugar. This was a tank sample when seen but out of cask and the final blend, awaiting bottling. It is not terribly concentrated, but it has good structure. The tannins were a bit too hard on opening, but it should come along pretty quickly. This will probably be approachable on the younger side, but it does also have a bit of that Douro warmth, perhaps even a little alcohol in the background. As it sat, it thinned a bit, but I still Iiked its fruit, while the backbone became appealingly assertive. At the suggested price, it is a good value, but I would say its siblings in the Sogevinus stable this issue (Cálem, Kopke) show better. The nice price makes this still worth a look. This will be released shortly after this article appears.
