Description

Please note that these are MAGNUM (1.5lt Bottles )

Oscar and Claudia Quevedo have recently declared their 2018 Quevedo Vintage port. This follows their acclaimed 2017 Vintage.

2018 was a roller-coaster of a year with an exceptionally wet spring followed by a summer punctuated by heatwaves. Whilst not a general declaration, the ports we have tasted are excellent. Quevedo, who have a several prime vineyards, each with their own micro-climate, were able to select the best grapes to blend into their vintage and the result is a port worthy of its declaration.

Tasting Notes:
The 2018 Quevedo Vintage port is big and bold on the palate with tons of opulent black fruit. There is liquorice and bright fresh fruit complimented by tannins and peppery spice. Rich with good acidity. A well structured wine.

The 2018 Vintage Port is a field blend, which is mostly represented as Touriga Franca (30%), Touriga Nacional (20%) and Tinta Roriz (15%), with dollops of others for the rest. It is unoaked and comes in with 86 grams of residual sugar. This is sourced from Quinta Vale d’Agodinho in the Ferradosa Valley, planted in 1983. Dry, stern and very serious, this projects a lot of power, with the fruit well in second place just now. Tight and needing to unravel, this is built to age, which is generally a good thing for Port. This is going to be one that will require a little extra patience, even if it is true that people are diving into Vintage Ports younger than ever these days. It should age and develop well. In fact, three days later, it showed off its good fruit more, while still finishing with firmness. As noted, it's a very dry and serious style, so don't expect a fruit bomb. If that style is your style, this is superb, with plenty of room to improve in the cellar. Its purity is a plus.

Deep black with the narrowest, purple rim. Deep and slightly backward nose, with briary, damson fruit, a hint of stem-like herbs, coal smoke, dried liquorice and some spice. Unsurprisingly, very primary! On the palate, the floral violet and rose notes are more prominent, with fine, mouth-coating tannins, classic for vintage port – though not as powerfully structured as some (Taylor’s, in particular, springs to mind). Attractive harmony, with sufficient length for requisite maturation, albeit a comparatively early one. (TJ)
