Producer Profile

Real Companhia Velha is the oldest wine company in Portugal, having recently celebrated 260 years of uninterrupted port production.

Founded in 1756 by the King of Portugal, this company represents some of the finest Quintas in the Douro. Old but not out of touch, they have been able to preserve and honour the traditional winemaking while investing in the future with constant modernisation and experimentation in their vineyards.

Viticulture
Upwards of 30 grape varieties can be used to make port but only what are considered the best are planted in the Delaforce vineyards, each contributing its unique character and flavour to the blend, which include Touriga Francesa, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz. Hand selected and harvested in mid September into small trays to keep them in perfect condition.

Winemaking
Unlike vintage Port, which benefits from some years in bottle, Late Bottled Vintage does not need to be cellared and is ready to drink. Bottled after maturing in wood for up to six years, offering an early softness and development, LBV Port is only made available in those years when the harvest has been very good, thus constantly produce a mature port of vintage quality, and are ready for drinking without requiring decanting.

Oak Treatment
Time: 5 years
Type: French and American

Tasting Notes

A deep red colour, ripe jammy plum and berry fruit aromas combine with the rich mellow flavours of wood ageing and displays the characteristic elegance, balance and harmony of the Delaforce house style. Rich and round on the palate
