Warres's Quinta da Cavdinha, 2002
Single vineyard (quinta) vintage port, from one of the finest vineyards in the Douro. Quinta da Cavadinha is located in the heart of the Pinhão Valley and the main vineyard is situated in a gentle ‘bowl’ (180 metres above sea level) formed by a sharp bend in the Pinhão River. It rises very steeply with terraced vineyards to an altitude of 440 metres and the vineyard aspect is south-east and east.
One of the great strengths of Vintage Port is that it gives equal pleasure enjoyed young and after several decades in bottle. One of the best pairings with Vintage Port is cheese (cream cheese, blue cheese and cured cheese) but it can also be enjoyed alongside many desserts, or simply on its own.
