Ramos Pinto has announced the release of its 2015 Vintage Port after an' excellent year' in the Douro. A very dry growing season and lower than average rainfall, coupled with a dry winter followed by an atypically warm spring, allowed the grapes to ripen fully in time for harvest in late August.
The Vintage is made from a blend of grapes from old vines grown in the Quinta de Ervamoira (Douro Superior) and Quinta do Bom Retiro (Cima Corgo). Ramos Pinto has hailed the Vintage Port as having exceptional concentration, complexity, balance and, above all, freshness.
Ana Rosas, master blender at Ramos Pinto, described the 2015 Vintage Port as 'a wine with attractive aromas, fruit and rockrose, a good body with a long peppery finish. A vintage which will age for many years.'
'The declaration of a vintage is always an exciting moment for a Port House and we are extremely pleased that Ramos Pinto has decided to declare the 2015, having produced a wine of excellent quality and personality in one of the driest growing seasons of recent years,' Richard Billett, managing director of Maisons Marques et Domaines, added.
