Winemaker's Notes

Only 2,000 cases of the very finest Port produced at the property in 2000 have been selected for bottling, all of which will be released En Primeur.

The viticultural year in 2000 was largely responsible for the outstanding quality of the wines produced at Roriz. Adverse weather conditions in May were detrimental to flowering and thus ensured low yields. Hot weather up to the vintage interspersed with some rain in August led to a text book maturation of the grapes, followed by ideal weather during picking.

Opaque purple colour. On the nose great complexity, ripe black fruits with a mineral hint. On the palate huge concentration and tannic structure, with the Sousão component of the blend producing fine acidity.

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.
