Winemaker's Notes

#55 Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2005!

Wine note:
This dry table wine from the Port producing region is a blend of 45% Tinta Roriz, 35% Tinta Franca, 10% Tinta Barroca and 10% Touriga Nacional. Winemakers Charles Symington and Pedro Carreia do a rigorous triage, ferment the grapes traditionally with pumping over and age the wine nine months in French and American second-year oak. Wine & Spirits Magazine named Quinta de Roriz their Winery of the Year in 2004 saying they are "one of the Douro's finest estates!"

"Rich and concentrated, with layers of mouthfilling red and black fruit flavors. Full-bodied, with blackberry, dark chocolate and licorice elements all in balance. Pure, minerally finish, with plenty of grip. Tempting now!" 91 pts & Smart Buy - Wine Spectator, 5/31/05

Winery info:
Quinta de Roriz is one of the oldest and finest estates in the Douro and has been owned by the van Zeller family since 1815. Historical records show that Roriz was the very first Quinta Port to be exported and the first Quinta to establish an international reputation for the quality of its wines. During much of the 19th Century, Roriz was considered one of the greatest of Vintage Ports, and it is intended to re-establish this standing in the 21st Century.
