Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

At Quinta de de Roriz the classic schistous soil of the Upper Douro predominates, but the soil composition and structure are particular to this property. The Quinta also has tin and traces of gold and this unique mineral structure at Roriz brings a strong individual personality to the

wines. Quinta de Roriz 2005 Vintage Port is opaque with a deep purple rim, the sign of a classic young Vintage Port. The wine shows tremendous aromatic concentration, with fresh and youthful aromas of blackberries and black cherries combined with hints of spices and cedar wood. On the palate rich and well balanced, with layers of polished tannins and the hallmark mineral tones. A luscious and incredibly persistent finish.

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.

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.
