In the good year’s when Dow’s does not ‘declare’ a Vintage, the best Ports of Quinta do Bomfim are carefully selected and bottled as Dow’s Quinta do Bomfim Vintage Port. These wines are exceptionally good. They will tend to mature a little earlier than the very rare ‘Declared’ years, but can be every bit as good as some other Vintage Ports. The very high percentage of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional planted on the estate result in the powerful aromas of mint and violets on the finest Ports from Bomfim. Bomfim’s wines are vinified in the quinta’s fermentation vats which have been successively upgraded over the years and which continue to produce excellent wines.
Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Nacional
Exceptionally aromatic, with aromas of violets, which is quite typical of the Vintage Port from Dow's. In the nose blackberry ringtones, black currant and plum. There is also present notes of esteva contribution of the Touriga Nacional. This is a vibrating wine, which shows already quite complex and subtle. Has something of spices, from the relatively high proportion of Sousão, which are balanced by fresh acidity and minerality. On the palate its dry but firm with a long finish and ripe tannins.
