Description

Aged White Port is one of Quevedo’s pride. This White Port, rated as outstanding by Wine Advocate, was crafted by blending a selection of Quevedo’s best aged Ports averaging 10 years. These Ports aged in old neutral wood casks, has its own personality. The result: A smooth, rich, complex, multi-layered and very balanced 10-Year-old White

Our Tasting Notes: The Quevedo is golden-amber in colour with an aroma of dried and candied fruits like mango and apricot, plums, raisins and quince. On the palate there is a lovely balance between the fruits, sweetness and acidity. The wine develops on layers of flavours between the candied and dried fruits, the acidity combines with some bitter notes due to the slow oxidation in cask to bring nerve to the wine before leaving us on a beautiful complex finish lingering on spicy notes.

White Port is best served chilled as an aperitif.

Quevedo is part of a new generation of small family wineries based in the Douro. For many years, these families were growing grapes, and making Port wine, for merchants based in Vila Nova de Gaia.

*** 90/100 points(MS)- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate***
The NV 10 Year Old White Port is a blend of Malvasia Fina (29%), Viosinho (24%), Gouveio (23%) and Moscatel Galego (15%), plus a dollop of Rabigato, bottled in January 2023 with 91 grams of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. Last year was the winery's first bottling of a 10 Year white. This is the new follow-up. It is rather splendid. For a 10 Year, there is plenty of concentration and power both. It is focused and precise with a big finish. It's just sweet enough to avoid being stern but dry enough to be balanced. The winery seems to touch all the bases here. These do not require aging and are made to drink on release, but they can certainly hold a reasonable time (likely more than indicated), if you must hold them.- Mark Squires. RobertParker.com
