Tasting notes:

A lovely light reddish colour. Aromas of fresh and dried fruits with hints of vanilla. Very balanced on the palate with an agreable after taste of cherries.

About the port:

After harvesting and fermentation, neutral grape spirit is added to the wine. This halts fermentation, increases the alcohol content and leaves a significant amount of residual sugar, hence the sweetness.

The port is then aged for a period of time (3-5 years) in oak barrels, maturing and taking on the oxidized characteristics and lovely dark amber colour. 

About the producer:

The company was established in the Douro in 1862 by the Portuguese family, Correa Ribeiro. The name was then changed in 1957 to the now C. da Silva when Mr Clemente da Silva received the company through marriage.

The company is dedicated to perfecting the art of production of  the finest port, through careful selection of the best wines in each vintage. 

During the ageing process, careful monitoring of quality takes place by highly skilled winemakers in modern, technologically advanced laboratories.
