Description

6 bottles per case

One of the principal components of Pombal do Vesuvio comes from the terraced vineyards that surround the ancient dovecote (‘pombal’ in Portuguese) planted primarily with Touriga Nacional during 2000 in the heart of this legendary Douro property. Touriga Franca from the Vale da Teja and Minas vineyards is the other significant contributor to the Pombal, along with a smaller contribution from the Tinta Amarela from the Quinta Nova vineyard.

 

Tasting Notes

Balsamic aromas of woodland and forest floor with resinous notes. In the background there are also hints of wildflowers and black fruits. On the palate, it shows itself powerful and tense, still a little reserved, but reveals an enormous gastronomic profile - a characteristic of ‘Pombal do Vesúvio’. The fine-grained tannins give a touch of spice and underpin the powerful structure of the wine whose acidity provides freshness and balance.

Vineyard Notes

We had a very dry and mild winter and spring, and by late summer the vines were in need of water to keep maturations on track. Fortunately, the virtual absence of rain from May to late August was counterbalanced by cooler summer conditions, which attenuated the lack of water. Fortunately, some rainfall in late August and ideal conditions through September, led to a balanced ripening of the various components of the grapes – reflected in the excellent balance between acidity and sugar levels. Yields were very close to average after the two very short years of 2017 and 2018. The grapes entered the winery in excellent condition with well-balanced ripeness. Freshness and vibrancy are the signature of the 2019 wines.
