This delicious full-bodied Port is the product of an exceptional year in quality, aged four to six years in oak barrels, in our cellars Gaia. It is filtered before bottling to prevent the formation of deposits, getting ready to drink. The Romariz Late Bottled Vintage is characterized by its fruity aroma and velvety softness. It is particularly popular with cheese.
Fantastic bouquet, with aromas of ripe blackberry in cascade and red plum. A full mouth feel and engaging with very rich flavors of wild berries and juicy. Velvety soft but well structured. A wine deliciously plump and full, with good depth and a charming and intense ending.
The LBV is the perfect ending to any meal. There needs to be decanted and should be served in a cup not too small so you can fully appreciate its rich fruit. Goes well with strong cheeses, especially blues. It is also delicious with chocolate desserts or berries.
Reviews and Awards:
. Gold medal Sélections Mondiales 2007.
Flowering in the Duoro occurred in the last 10 days of May. The weather conditions provided for a perfect flowering season. The Romariz Vintage Port 2003 yielded wines of great color and supple tannins, with a vintage stamp being evident in most wines. Production: 8,000 cases. "Another bright and fruity young Vintage Port with plum, grape and blackberry aromas with just a hint of stems. Serious nose here. Full-bodied, with soft, round tannins and a long, caressing finish. A beauty." - J.S., Wine Spectator, 89-91 pts "Bright dark ruby. Deep, perfumed aromas of cassis, licorice, violet and minerals. Lush and high-toned in the mouth but with very good vinosity and spine. Lovely fruit-driven flavors of black cherry, blackberry and dark chocolate. Little sign of the roasted side of 2003. Not hugely concentrated but suave, supple, minerally and sweet. Finishes with ripe tannins and very good spicy persistence. A very good showing. Accessible already but balanced for medium-term aging." - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, 89 pts

Gaudrelle Vouvray Reserve Armand Monmousseau 2009 (half-bottle) is made from 100% late harvest Chenin blanc

Gravas Sauternes is a blend of 95% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon.
Powerful aromas, great finesse and a long lingering finish.
Keermont Fleurfontein 2012 is made from 60% Sauvignon and 40% Chenin Blanc.
An attractive autumn yellow gold color, powerful apple, lime and melons on the nose with light oak and nut aromas, palate defined by a central core of fresh acidity which balances the sweetness and layers of fruit and rich lease. Drink now through 2020.
All grapes used in producing this wine were grown on Keermont Vineyards. Bottling was carried out by hand without filtration, so if you are lucky you may find a little lees in the bottom of your bottle.
The wine is produced by pinching the stems of the grapes while they hang on the vine. This stops the translocation of fluids into and out of the grapes and allows them to slowly dry out on the vine. The raisins are harvested a few weeks later and the syrupy juice is squeezed from them with a hard pressing process. The syrup ferments in barrel and is left to mature for 12 months. Total production was just one barrel yielding 580 bottles.
The 2012 Fleurfontein comes from late-picked Sauvignon Blanc vines planted in 2005 that are matured in oak for 18 months. Carrying 206 grams per liter residual sugar, it has a luscious dried honey, beeswax and quince-scented bouquet that is well-defined and vigorous. The palate is well-balanced, viscous, with Devonshire fudge infusing the mango and pineapple fruit. It is not too unctuous or cloying, making this easier to drink than its peers. -Wine Advocate 91 Points

Romariz 20 Years Old Tawny is rich, warm and well balanced. Concentrated, firm tannins. Aromas of hazelnuts and walnuts, raisin, honey, caramel and dark chocolate notes. Excellent with desserts, cheese or by itself at the end of a meal.
The winter preceding the 2011 harvest was wetter and colder than the 30-year average. Budburst occurred as usual around 19th March and warm weather and rainfall in April produced vigorous growth. At the beginning of May dry conditions set in and there was little rainfall in eastern areas of the Douro Valley until late August. However the vines were able to draw from the plentiful ground water reserves built up early in the year and bunches developed and ripened in ideal conditions. Véraison (coloring of the grapes) occurred a little earlier than usual on 15th June.
Mild weather in June and July was broken only by a heat wave in the second half of June. August was hot and dry, with perfectly timed rainfall on 21st August and 1st September rounding off an excellent ripening season and producing a well-balanced crop. Picking started in mid September in the Cima Corgo area of the Douro Valley. Fermentations were long, allowing balanced and complete extraction, and musts displayed intense color and powerful fruit character from the outset.
Deep inky purple color. Intricate nose with aromas of blackberries and logan berries, subtle hints of amber and spring blossom and delicate spice. A tight, well-formed palate with an abundance of dark berry fruit, rich chocolate and liquorice, culminating in a long finish. Firm, closely woven tannins that give the wine great structure and body. An elegant finely constituted Vintage Port which will drink beautifully now or age quietly in the cellar.
Intense garnet color. Black cherry and raspberry aromas. The mouth is full and persistent with a good structure.
Lasting but soft, creamy, full of scent of dried fruits.
Ideal with boiled, roasted and grilled meat.
"Aromas of ripe raspberry jam, plum, menthol and baking spice lead the nose on this bold red. The dense palate delivers raisin, dried black cherry and licorice alongside assertive, close-grained tannins that grip the finish.- Kerin O'Keefe"
