Total ny Vintage - hvor vi kun har fået meget begrænset antal flasker hjem.
En vintage som vi har smagt og giver toppoints....
Der er virkelig potientale for noget stort her..
Vi overlader ordet til Ramos Pinto huset selv - med deres beskrivelse.
Quinta do Bom Retiro is only produced in exceptional years from the best plots on the estate. With a total of 110 hectares, 64 planted to vines with an average age of 40 years.
Ramos Pinto has always been a pioneer in the Douro, Bom Retiro was the Quinta first to use new planting methods suited to the terroir of the Douro. Vineyards are established on pre-phylloxera stone terraces, patamares and for the first time in the Douro, also on mechanizable vertical plantings.
Winter was particularly cold in 2018, with low levels of precipitation. Spring showers and cool temperatures gave way to a very hot and dry August and September which meant grapes were fully ripe and mature come harvest.
Speaking on behalf of Ramos Pinto, Jorge Rosas CEO, commented that the 2018 vintage was "the definition of elegance. It is the perfect fingerprint of the exceptional and unique vineyards at Quinta do Bom Retiro".
