The Bergqvist family has been involved in the wine business since 1815 both in winemaking and shipping. In the 1930’s they sold their shipping company, Feueheerd, but retained Quinta de La Rosa which was managed by Claire Feueheerd. In 1988, Clair’s granddaughter Sophia and her father Tim decided to relaunch Quinta de La Rosa. Eleven estate vineyards are planted along the Douro River and rise island to 1,200 feet. The older vineyards are planted to Touriga Nacional, Souzao, Touriga Franca and Tinta Cao and the average age of the vines is 50 years old. The newer vineyards were planted in the early 1970’s and were planted to Touriga Nacional,Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Tinta Cao. A new winery was completed in time for the 2012 harvest. This gravity-fed facility features four temperature controlled granite lagares. Head winemaker Jorge Moreira studied in Spain and Italy before joining the estate in 2002.

Tasting notes
This young tawny has a pale amber hue and a dry finish, with notes of caramelized figs, dates and prunes.

Wine maker notes
Quinta de la Rosa's Tawny Port is unique in that it comes from A graded grapes all grown on the Quinta. Most other tawny blends come from further down the river nearer Regua where there is higher rainfall and most grapes are B to D quality so the resulting port tends to be less concentrated. Some of our tawny is still made in the traditional way – trodden in granite lagares.

Technical notes
Tinta Nacional, Touriga Francesca, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz were fermented in stainless steel and aged in 550 liter neutral oak barrels.

Food pairing
Good to drink chilled as an aperitif as well as after dinner. This Port has been lightly filtered and does not require decanting.
