Dow`s Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira 2015
Senhora da Ribeira is a magnificent vineyard in the Douro Superior sub-region and is the source for much of the fruit for Dow’s classic Vintage Ports. However, in years that Dow’s do not ‘declare’ a Vintage, the wine produced is bottled as Dow’s Quinta de Senhora da Ribeira. The 2015 is a blend of mostly Touriga Franca with Touriga Nacional and a small amount of Sousão. It is a bold and flamboyant release, laden with red berry and black cherry fruits and deep savoury complexity. Mouthcoating and rich, yet superbly well-balanced, there is youthful attractiveness aplenty, but the best will come after at least 10 years in the cellar.
