IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Very concentrated and focused aromas, where they divide between fresh, cherry fruit and well ripened plums and wild berries. On one side the port is very generous whilst allowing bitter chocolate and alcoholic flavours to come through. On the palate it is exuberant and seductive, with enormous intensity and complexity but without any extremes resulting in a very balanced and elegant wine. The fruit, chocolate and liquor flavours are well integrated with the tannins which are obvious but yet soft. This 2012 vintage is in an ideal phase for immediate consumption for those who like their vintage ports young and vibrant but it will develop and mature well in the bottle for the next few decades. Jorge adores this vintage port! The 2012s are often underrated after the 2011s but not this one!

Tasting Notes:
As for many young vintages, the 2012 has a beautiful dark purple colour with rich black cherry aromas. A ‘lighter’ vintage port it shows pretty floral element with cedary undertones on the palate. The brandy is well integrated so there is little of the spirit burn that you often find with young vintages. This vintage is very approachable showing good balance and elegance – a hallmark of La Rosa’s style.

Store and Serve Advices:
The 2012 Vintage will age well for many decades. But it is also approachable and can be consumed as a young vintage port. 

Food Pairing:
Drink as a digestif with cheese, chocolates or on its own. Remember to decant the port after it has thrown a deposit. This will happen after it has been a few years in bottle.
