£48.99 - Very elegant and compact approach. Excellent volume, with very round and intense tannins that lead to a firm structure. Finishes very elegantly with a aromatic explosion of wild berries. The result ia a complex, persistent and fresh wine, which can age in bottle for a long time.

Wine Making
Vinyard Wine Maker Vinification
Foot trodden in stone lagares in the traditional manner, Quinta do Crasto only 'declares' a vintage Port when there is sufficient wine of outstanding quality. Wine from the older vineyards usually forms the backbone of the blend. Vintage Ports are bottled without filtration after spending around two years ageing in cask. The wines continue to age in bottle for up to fifty years, gaining depth and complexity. Like all wines which throw a sediment, they should be decanted before serving. Features Grape variety/varieties Mixed plantings (up to 25 different grape varieties) Average age of vines 70 years Soil Schist Region Douro Valley (north of Potugal) Vinification techniques Grapes are hand picked in small plastic craters.
100 % foot troden in traditional stone "lagares". Natural yeast. Basket press. Fortified brandy is added to the must at 8º Baumé to stop the fermentation. Wine is bottled without any finning or filtration after two years in wood.

The wine can be enjoyed now, and will become more complex with further cellaring for a couple of decades.
