2004 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: The 2004 vintage was not generally declared, but some wonderful single quinta vintages were bottled. These 2004 Vintage Ports show an intense deep purple-red colour, a factor that was strongly influenced by the August rains that softened the skins and allowed for better colour extraction. The nose is lifted and fresh, again thanks to the cooler August weather. The taste is rich, firm and with good acidity and fine peppery tannins. These wines are most attractive and will age extremely well, making them an ideal 18 year old wine gift for an anniversary this year.
 
Italian: Produce of Piemonte in 2004 is very promising with few extremes of weather and well balanced wines. In Tuscany, the year was an exceptionally good vintage, central Italy’s equivalent of the perfect growing season that France experienced in 2005.
 
Bordeaux: The 2004 wine vintage marked a return to a more classic Bordeaux vintage. The wines are more traditionally styled, and will make fine drinking for many cellars. The vintage seems a little under-rated compared with 2003 and the wines represent good value.
 
Burgundy: Large vintage of far from flashy but pretty serviceable and certainly good value wines. Relatively light and crisp, for early drinking though the best may surprise in the long run.
 
Champagne: Unusually, quality and quantity were both hallmarks of 2004. The vintage produced structured, well-balanced wines which have exceeded expectation.
 
Spain: A very good year, especially for Rioja, with wines that should last well.

Special Offer | Was £36 | Now £25
Exclusive to VWP

2004 White Colheita Port - 50cl Bottle.
This port-wine has been stored in seasoned oak casks since the 2004 harvest until it was bottled this year. White ports are a true rarity and this is an outstanding example.

Tasting Notes: The 2004 Palmer white port has a golden amber colour. On the nose it has a very fine, elegant aroma of honey, and peach infused with a spicy redolence of citrus peel and cinnamon. There are layers of complexity here with mint and a touch of walnut. The palate is perfectly balanced with a fresh acidity and sweetness. It has an amazing rich mellow flavour and an elegant citrus finish that lasts for minutes.

Kopke Port, 2004

Special Offer | Was £69.95 | Now £54.95

***91-93 Pts- Roy Hersh, For the Love of Port***
For the chocolate lover, the intense, spicy blackberry nose and flavor is like feasting on warm, molten chocolate filled cake with a heavenly fruit sauce. The burst of fruit in the mouth-filling palate carries through soft tannins balanced by good structure to a lingering dark berry finish. “full throttle with excellent balance and a very, enjoyable finish with virtually no sign of tannins. Drink tomorrow or in 15 years; an impressive effort by Kopke.”

Quevedo, 2004

Sale

Colheita Port

The 2004 Quevedo colheita port is an amazing value/quality port. The tawny has a medium to dark brick colour, hints of pomegranate clear and even from the centre to
the edge. Definitively on the elegance and purity on the nose which opens up notes of fresh almonds, dried figs and nutmeg. On the palate the 2004 is surprisingly fresh,
with layers of flavours ranging from almonds, grilled nuts and caramel. The balance between acidity, sugar and concentrated flavours lifts the mid-palate through a
remarkable fresh, polished and long aromatic finish. Excellent.

Winemakers Notes
The Spring of 2004 was dry and sunny and that gave us a good quantity of grapes on the vines.

Quinta de la Rosa, 2004

Vintage Port

La Rosa's classic house style achieved by slow maceration in traditional granite 'Lagares' has produced a wine full of luscious forward fruit with a very attractive nose and a long velvety slightly drier finish across the palate

La Rosa is a vertically integrated Quinta rising to 450 metres above sea level, boasting many hidden micro climates within its cirtilage. Where possible we vintage and mature these small 'lotes' separately in order to achieve the maximum complexity in the finished ports, which would not have been possible from a less diversely planted property.

Quinta do Noval Nacional, 2004

Vintage Port- SINGLE BOTTLE

A 2004 vintage port wine. We are thrilled to be able to offer Nacional 2004 at the same time. Christian fell in love with the wine after harvest, so the wine was declared but not released. Kept instead under the watchful eye of Technical Director Antonio Agrellos to see how it developed. Considering the pedigree, it comes as no surprise that the wine lived up to their expectations, and so now, 10 years after the harvest, the 2004 is ready for release.

At Quinta do Noval the bud burst occurred mid-March followed by a quick flowering in the end of May due to high temperatures and lack of precipitation.
