Tasting Notes

The wine is rich, dark and concentrated; it has aromas of violets and “esteva” (rock rose) and is very smooth and elegant on the palate. The 1995 Vesuvio will rank as one of the Quinta’s finest Vintages. All the wine made at Vesuvio was trodden by foot in the Quinta’s ancient lagares.

Vineyard Notes

The winter of 1994/5 brought good rainfall to Vesuvio. However March and April were surprisingly warm. This encouraged very early leaf growth, budding and eventual flowering. By early August the old vineyards were some two weeks ahead of their normal level of maturation. By the end of the month, which had been very hot, the grapes looked in excellent condition, with the slight “wrinkling” that demonstrates to a Port producer that the juice is very concentrated and rich. Picking started on the 4th September, some 14 days earlier than average. A little rain had softened the skins allowing for easier color extraction.

Winemaker Notes

Peter Symington selected only 52 pipes from the Quinta’s total production of 385 pipes, to bottle as Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port.

Pairings

Quinta do Vesuvio 1995 will surely make any lunch or dinner a memorable one. It is a fabulous accompaniment to chocolate desserts, such as chocolate pudding, but can also be enjoyed on its own - it is an experience in itself.
