COCKBURN'S "QUINTA DOS CANAIS" VINTAGE PORT 2001
6 Bottles per Case
Red ruby color. On the nose lifted red fruit aromas with nuances of peach and ripe apricot. The palate has rich red fruit flavors, medium body and good balance, leading to a slightly drier finish in the Cockburn style.
The predominantly South facing exposure of Quinta dos Canais produces grapes with a high degree of maturation. The Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca grape varieties, the Douro’s finest, make up nearly 60% of all vineyard planting at Canais, thus largely determining the style of Canais wines. The high level of maturation almost always achieved at the property produces Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca wines at their best with typical floral aromas combined with rock rose.
One of the best pairings is cheese (cream cheese, blue cheese and cured cheese) but it can also be enjoyed alongside many desserts, or simply on its own.
