QUINTA DA ROMANEIRA
Lovely concentration, quite tightly wound, dark fruit core, bramble, dark cherry, then floral, roses, violets with good freshness. The palate is beautifully delivered, concentrated black fruit, meat, spice, some oak, but fresh and balanced, floral on the finish, wonderful length. Drinking range: 2018 - 2030 L&S (Jun 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The top wine from Romaneira shows the power and the richness that can come from this property. Aging for 14 months in wood has just enhanced the opulent black fruits, ripe tannins and acidity. It is an impressive wine, made for aging and not likely to be ready until 2020. Rating: 95 The Wine Enthusiast(Nov 2017)
Quinta da Romaneira
Whilst an old estate with a consequentially long history, Quinta da Romaneira only really becomes of note when new purchasers of the estate placed it under the management of Christian Seely and Antonio Agrellas who had worked such wonders at Quinta do Noval. Since then the vineyards have been overhauled, the best old vines have been retained in tandem with a replanting programme for the rest of the vineyard. A brand new winery has been constructed, two-thirds of it underground allowing Romaneira to have a proper cool wine cellar in the heart of the Douro valley.
85ha of vineyard, stretching some 3km along the River Douro are planted with both traditional Douro grapes and some plantings of international varieties.
Of course, this being the Douro valley, Quinta da Romaneira produce some very high quality Ports, but the forward focus of the estate is to realise the potential for table wine. In the words of Christian Seely, "our challenge has been, and remains, to find ways to vinify unfortified wines from the Douro that can take their rightful place among the great wines of the world, alongside the other great classic regions such as Bordeaux, Burgundy or the Rhone Valley."
