More information on wine critics and ratings

This Port is made each year in the traditional manner trodden in granite lagares from grapes grown at Quinta de la Rosa. The Finest Reserve is then blended from stocks of Port to produce a consistent quality, this blending occurs on a regular basis to ensure that stocks are always fresh.

"Ports from each year are stored and matured in own lodge and it is from these stocks that we blend our Finest Reserve. The average age of the port in our Finest Reserve blend is about 6-7 years. Unlike most port shippers, all products are stored and bottled in the Douro (at La Rosa and not Porto), allowing full traceability and ensuring quality from grape to bottle. "

Tasting notes
A Vintage Character style blended port of great quality and complexity. Showing beautiful deep ruby colour with plenty of forward fruit, full bodied with a long dry finish. The slight dry finish is typical of La Rosa's house style.

Serving suggestion : This Port has been lightly filtered and does not require decanting, delicious with dessert or cheese.

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (NV)
Quinta de la Rosa's Finest Reserve Port is a stunning example of what can be achieved and found in non-vintage port blends. This small port lodge has turned out a terrific, full-bodied, garnet/ruby-colored wine with a big, chocolatey, black-cherry, cedary nose, full-bodied, unctuously-textured flavors, and gobs of fruit and richness, as well as an off-dry, impressive finish. Drink it over the next decade or more.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 87 Points (NV)
Very fruity and fresh, featuring loads of sweet red berry and plum flavors, with notes of currant and spice. Creamy finish. Drink now.

Ata Rangi McCrone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015
Ata Rangi McCrone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015
This wine is a bolder style than Ata Rangi's flagship Pinot Noir. The nose has rich, spicy aromas with a hint of manuka flower. On the palate, velvety tannins are supported by savoury flavours with a juicy and complex finish.

Saint Clair Omaka Reserve Chardonnay 2018
An elegant and silky wine, with fragrant peach aromas, layered with toasted spice and subtle vanilla notes. Concentrated notes of fresh peach, ripe grapefruit and biscuity notes on the palate continue on the long finish.

Amalaya Amalaya Malbec 2018
Amalaya Amalaya Malbec 2018
For centuries, farmers made offerings in hope for a miracle – as Amalaya translates in the local language – for a bountiful harvest. It is located at 1,800 meters above sea level, in the Calchaqui Valley, northwest of Argentina. The region stands out as one of the highest vineyards in the world, characterized by its dry climate with no more than 150 mm annual rainfall, with significant thermal amplitude; rocky and sandy soil.
