Quinta das Carvalhas 10 years represents the beginning of a premium range of aged Ports produced at this Estate, in which the complexity of flavours and aromas is a predominant characteristic. Rich and mellow is the best way to describe this glorious 10-Year-old Porto. With a glass highlighted by aromas of dry raisins, chocolate, caramel and hints of honey, this Porto, represents Quinta das Carvalhas' terroir through the astonishing aromatic intensity and complexity of its old vines. This Porto holds an elegant palate with a persistent and long finish, which makes it an excelent partner for chocolate deserts.
This offers concentrated red plum and dried cherry flavors that feature plenty of cocoa powder notes. The finish is fresh and well-spiced. Drink now. 2,300 cases made.
While the wine is showing the spirit strongly, that doesn't detract from the good acidity and dried-fruit flavors. It has kept much of its freshness, still hinting at red fruits, while the wood aging provides great support. The aftertaste, with its aromatic acidity, is just right.
