The Symington family, known for producing several much-admired Port wines from several reputable brands, has launched what is considered a magnificent Vintage: Dow’s Senhora da Ribeira Vintage 2015.
Quinta Senhora da Ribeira is one of the most isolated vineyards in the Douro and, together with Quinta do Bomfim, provides the best grapes that originate the Dow’s wine.
The finest grape varieties of Touriga Nacional and Franca, as well as small portions of Sousão grapes, resulted in an exceptional opaque purple-black Port wine, with great complexity, refreshing tannins and a balanced acidity.
Dow’s Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira Vintage 2015 is a firm, structured and intense Port wine, that characterizes perfectly Dow’s classic and incomparable style.
It reveals quite fragrant floral aromas, with particular attention to delicate violet notes. On the palate, there are evident some notes of bitter chocolate and ripe fruit, providing its delicate sweetness. This Vintage also reveals spicy, firm and precise tannins.
The aftertaste is long, elegant and simply irresistible.
