Quinta de Roriz 1999

Release Notes

Excellent concentration of colour. On the nose striking notes of black fruits with a light touch of esteva. In the mouth, a classic profile with great balance, firm tannins and long finish full of character.

Tasting Notes

Top wine from this smaller estate. It’s incredibly stylish, even as young as it is now. A lighter body featuring more liquid and less plum pudding should mean that it will be an easy drinker come maturity. With pure fruit, spice and lots of coffee already poking through, it has a fine future.

Score: 95/100

This ’99 comes primarily from old vines, before João van Zeller and the Symington family began replanting this quinta in 2000. Delicious and young, this hits right off with a floral, strawberry scent and a lovely texture. It’s more vinous than most Porto, built more like a Banyuls. Tart and grapey, high in tone, this doesn’t seem destined for long aging, but at eight to ten years, it should be a star with Roquefort, gorgonzola dolce or a block of Stilton.

Score: 88/100
