Quinta de la Rosa has been in the Bergqvist family since 1906, although they have been in the port trade as shippers under the family name, Feueheerd, since 1815. It currently has around 55 hectares under vine and produces around 50,000 litres of port and 160,000 litres of table wine each year. Quinta de la Rosa is situated in Northern Portugal, 100kms inland from Oporto. It is set in the heart of the Alto Douro ‘A’ grade port growing area and is located along the banks of the river, near Pinhão.

Tasting notes:
'The 2015 Tinto is approximately a blend of 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca and 30% Tinta Roriz, aged for 12 months in an 80/20 mixture of used and new French oak. It comes in at 14% alcohol. Light and not showing a lot of concentration, this excels at everything else. It shows the fine flavors of the vintage in a serious way; the fruit is vivid and well supported by the structure. It tightens noticeably with air, seeming more serious with every ten-minute interval. Even with the modest mid-palate, this is pretty terrific. It tastes great, often seems very serious and finishes well. It is a great choice for a well-priced house pour that can age a bit. You can approach this young, but waiting another few months, if not a year, would help it become more expressive and harmonious.' – The Wine Advocate, 89/100
