A classy Port, full-bodied and brimming with fruit flavour and silky, fine tannins that kick in on the finish. A subtle wine that takes you by surprise.
Tasting notes: Good aromas and flavours of pepper, raisin and ripe fruit in this young vintage Port. Medium-bodied, medium-sweet, with a fresh aftertaste.
Martinez Gassiot goes almost unnoticed in the Vintage Port circles, but the house often makes outstanding Ports that equal on better those of its sister house, Cockburn's Smithes.
Production of Martinez Vintage Port is limited, with only about 3,000 cases made in a declaration. Martinez include only one single quinta called Eira Velha, located west of Pinhão Valley, Eira Velha encompasses about 120 acres.
Good levels - Very damaged label.
