Quinta de Vargellas is very distinguished among the wine estates of the Douro. Prized as a source of the finest Port wines since the 1820s, today it ranks among the great vineyards of the world.

A Quinta de Vargellas Vintage Port is generally more early maturing than the declared Taylor’s Vintages. Often quite approachable when young, they will nevertheless mature well for many years if laid down. The elegant and finely constituted wines of Vargellas are remarkable for their complex fruit, their distinctive scented quality and their well integrated sinewy tannins.

“Rich and sweet with dark cherry, plum and blackberry fruit on the nose, as well as some spicy notes. The palate is pure, smooth and sweet with some lush dark fruits over a spicy, tannic backbone. Rich and lush, but with enough structure to maintain interest. Seductive with real refinement. " - Awarded 94 Points, Jamie Goode
Inky black with a vivid purple rim. Compact and stylish nose, with intense aromas of blackcurrant and wild berries tightly wrapped around a dark nucleus of liquorice and treacle. This dense backdrop is overlaid with subtle notes of tea, rose petal, thyme and exotic wood with an attractive grapey freshness emerging as the nose develops. As usual with Vargellas the nose shows exceptional purity and resolution but is seductive in its complexity. On the palate the tannins are beautifully integrated and deceptively subtle but their firm sinews become apparent on the long finish which is packed with intense black berry fruit flavour.
Best served with blue-veined and other richly flavoured cheeses alongside dried fruits such as apricots and figs.
