Offley Boa Vista Vintage 2011
Extremely intense in colour. A deep, almost-opaque, dark red. Exceptionally rich aromatically, black forest fruits especially plum, stand out in the nose, with oaky notes of pine and cedar, floral tones of rockrose, hints of "sous bois", and spices such as cloves and nutmeg. On the palate, an excellent body, well-present acidity, lively yet well-integrated tannins and hints of black forest fruits, again plum, but also cherry. An intense and persistent finish.
45% Touriga Nacional, 45% Touriga Franca, 10% Tinta Roriz
Alcohol: 21% | Total Acidity: 5,36 g/l (tartaric acid) | Sugar: 110 g/l | pH: 3,53
Offley Porto Boa Vista Vintage 2011 is ideal on its own at the end of a meal, or accompanied by dried fruits and rich cheeses. Whilst young, it will prove an excellent combination with chocolate-rich desserts and red-berry tarts.
Following the vintage, this Porto Wine remained in the Douro Region until the subsequent spring. In the meantime, the traditional ageing process got underway in oak barrels typical of the Offley style. As it aged for two years under the watchful eye of Offley winemakers, the wine's final blend was created from a meticulous selection of each Porto Wine lot, part of our constant quest for improved quality. In the tradition of Vintage Porto, the Offley Boa Vista Vintage 2011 was bottled in April 2013 without fining or filtration and therefore is likely to throw a deposit and will require decanting.
