2009 COLHEITA, Quinta de la Rosa (50cl bottle)
Alcohol Percentage: 19.5%
Area: This is Port country - i.e. source of some of the ripest, most intense red grapes in the world. The secret for successful whites is to use grapes from higher altitudes (therefore cooler) above the Douro Valley
Grape Variety: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz
Producer: Quinta de la Rosa is run by the indomitable Sophia Bergqvist. The estate was given as a christening present to Sophia's grandmother in 1906!
Colheita is a vintage dated tawny. So this was kept in barrel from 2009 until recent bottling
Cellar Potential: Ready to drink now
Old Bridge Rating: Lovely balance of richness and maturity
