This wine is vinified at the Quinta do Seixo winery, using selected grapes from existing plots. After soft-crushing and destemming, a gentle maceration took place via treading in traditional granite lagares at controlled temperatures. At the opportune moment, wine spirit was added to stop fermentation and "benefit" the wine.

After the harvest, the wine remained in the Douro where it was subject to its first racking during the winter. It was transported to Vila Nova de Gaia the following spring to enter the traditional ageing process in oak barrels. During this period, the wines were subject to further racking, analysis and tests to monitor their evolution. The final blend was obtained further to rigorous selection of the wines, to ensure the best possible quality.Storage
This Vintage Port is ready for immediate consumption. However, this wine will grow in complexity if aged in the bottle, reaching its peak after approximately 15 years. It has a lifespan of 20-25 years and will retain the great quality of a good "cellar wine" after this time.
If stored for a considerable period, it is natural that sediment will form in the bottle. In this case, the wine should be opened with care and decanted for best results. It is a surprising wine that benefits from being opened some time prior to consumption. Serve at between 16°C-18°C.Enjoy
The elegant and complex profile of this wine makes it the perfect match to rich chocolate desserts, red fruit tarts and intense cheeses.
