QUINTA DA ROMANEIRA
10 Year Old Tawny
|Grapes||Tinta Barroca, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz|
Beautiful light brick red colour and a pleasingly delicate shape. Lovely spicy, intense character, cherry and warm strawberries mingle with herbs and dark cherry notes. Light on its feet, but not shy in any way – lovely, long and beautifully poised. L&S (Nov 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
This aged quinta tawny is light red in hue, with warming aromas of raisin, cherry and strawberry. The lingering sweet finish is embellished with a trace of honey and toffee.Will Lyons, The Sunday Times (Oct 2020)
Pale red. Nuts and honey and just so gorgeous and deep. So much better than the average 10-year-old tawny. VGV Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Oct 2017)
Quinta da Romaneira
Whilst an old estate with a consequentially long history, Quinta da Romaneira only really becomes of note when, in 2004, new purchasers of the estate placed it under the management of Christian Seely and Antonio Agrellos 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."
