A few weeks ago I was kindly invited by Graham’s to attend their Tawny Ports relaunch. It’s a Port tasting (and a good one!) so I could never say no. I’m even in Porto that week for another Port Wine event (more on that in another post). It seems the stars are all aligned and I’m eager to get there.
I get to Symington’s HQ in Gaia to join the Symingtons and other guests in a small welcoming lunch. Between a bite or two of great food, I tasted a crispy and fresh Douro white with a lovely acidity (Altano 2011) and also a yet-to-be-released, powerful and concentrated Douro red (Quinta do Vesúvio 2009) that is showing great elegance and finesse. A promising start.
