(Port) Wine of the month June 2017: Quinta de La Rosa Vintage Port 1960
In the early 20th century Clara Bergqvist received a very special christening present: the Quinta de La Rosa. Her granddaughter Sophia runs the Quinta since many years with loving care and her most recent project is the "Cozinha da Clara", a very stylish restaurant overlooking the Douro. The opening ceremony finished with a La Rosa Vintage Port from Sophia's birthyear 1960, bottled by Sandeman.
Transparent, fresh, dark-red colour. Coffee and medicinal notes on the bouquet, herbs and spices. Elegant and balanced palate with coffee, mokka and malt. Long aftertaste with a certain finesse. 17/20
