Description

Announcing the new release of the 2021 Vintage Port from Quevedo - exclusively available in the UK from Vintage Wine and Port.

The Quevedo 2021 Vintage Port was born in the very good 2021 vintage. The weather returned to more normal patterns after a couple of years of drought and extreme heat. as with other Ports from this vintage the Quevedo stands out for its freshness and elegance.

Our notes: The Quevedo 2021 Vintage Port is a field blend of hand-harvested grapes from the family-owned vineyard on the plateau of São João da Pesqueira. The deep purple in colour, there is an engaging nose of ripe black cherries, aniseed and violets. Dry in style, on the palate, there are cherries and aniseed and a long finish with a hint of pepper. This Port is built to last. Drink 2025 -2040+ Tasted at the BFT in April 2023 - 94 Points. (TC VWP).

***91-93 Points - Mark Squires-Robert Parker.com***
The 2021 Vintage Port is a blend of 45% Touriga Franca, 28% Touriga Nacional, 20% Tinta Roriz and dollops of others, unoaked and coming in with just 81 grams of residual sugar. That's a typical blend from the quintas, Quinta Vale d'Agodinho and Quinta Trovisca, winding up on the drier side. It is set to be bottled at its normal time in June of this year. Simply delicious in its youth, this provides a wave of tasty fruits, mingling black cherries and blue fruits. It is pretty hard to resist and simply delicious. That said, there wasn't a lot of depth or power, especially early on. This seemed lighter styled and well on the elegant side. Even then, this compensated with the quality of the fresh, delectable fruit. It will be interesting to see if this can develop well too, as fine Vintage Port needs to do a little more than just taste great. When retasted the next day, it had a firmer finish, even a bit of a hard edge, while the exuberant young fruit seemed much more nuanced and complex. In fact, it began to seem a little stern, which was a quick transformation.

This doesn't look poised to be a truly distinguished Vintage Port, but it may have more potential than I first thought. Give it a few years, at least, to see where it goes. It might be approachable young, but it will close down and reward some cellaring.
