Description

The 2019 Burmester Late Bottled Vintage Port has an attractive and intense violet colour. Fresh and delicate nose, where notes of wild fruit are combined with balsamic notes of eucalyptus and mint. On the palate it is velvet, soft and structured, integrating the steam of the wild fruit with a long and delicious finish.

Winemaking:
Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in vats (lagares) at a controlled temperature (between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. A wine of high quality, made from one single harvest, bottled 4 to 6 years after harvest.

Food Pairing:
It can be appreciated as an aperitive or on any other occasion. Ideal accompaniment to nuts, cheeses or deserts.

Reviews

***17 pts Vinho Grandes Escolhas***
The aromas are delicate and varied, with plenty of tropical fruit, berries and grapes fully ripe. In its evolution are noticeable aromas of cocoa, chocolate and a slight toasted wood. The palate is dense and opaque. With a nice acidity, denotes a slight touch alcoholic who is very involved by notes of chocolate, black fruit and some wood.
