Quinta Da Gaivosa Late Bottled Vintage Port 2017
A very impressive Late Bottled Vintage Port from Alves de Sousa's best Quinta.
The Alves de Sousa family own five quintas but the star is their Quinta da Gaivosa situated high above the Rio Corgo, a tributary to the Douro. With some vineyards over 100 years of age planted high up on slatey soils giving real power and depth to the wines. Coupled with the winemaking skills of young Tiago Alves de Souza, already considered one of the best winemakers in Portugal, these wines go from strenth to strength. Classicly foot trodden this is deep in colour and fruit with a mineral backbone, impressive
This warm spicy dark fruited LBV Port is another stunning wine produced by Tiago Alves de Souza from his top Quinta.
Drinking beatifully but will keep a for abit too.
