Quinta do Vallado Adelaide Vintage 2015
With an opaque red colour, the Vallado Adelaide Vintage 2015 presents intense aromas of black fruits, perfectly balanced by soft notes of slightly bitter chocolate.
On the mouth, is a full-bodied Port, with excellent structure and complexity, ripe yet smooth tannins, therefore a very fresh and velvety wine in the mouth. The aftertaste is long, persistent and leaves delicate notes of chocolate bonbon and ripe fruit on the palate.
This vintage was produced with grape varieties of old vines (60%) and grapes of Touriga Nacional from the Quinta do Vallado, being placed to age for 20 months in stainless steel tanks, always with the guidance of the house winemakers Francisco Olazabal and Francisco Ferreira.
Built in 1716, Quinta do Vallado, that has belonged to the legendary Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, is located at Corgo river shore, nearby the lovely town of Peso da Régua.
The descendants of Dona Antónia, the great-grandson Jorge Viterbo Ferreira and the great-great-grandson Jorge Cabral Ferreira, that have been the responsible for the continued development and growth of Quinta do Vallado and for the production of outstanding wines, with recognized quality nationally and internationally, as this amazing Vallado Adelaide Vintage 2015.
