Dows Quinta Do Bomfim Single Quinta Vintage Port is made in the same way as Dow’s Vintage Port but in a year that is not declared as a vintage. Even in a slightly lesser vintage, most Port Houses can make extremely good wine from their best properties and, in some years, Single Quinta Ports can rival Vintage Ports.

Dow’s Port is one of the most famous names in the Port trade and today is owned and managed by the fifth generation of the Symington family. The family, whose experience dates back over 100 years, supervises all of their vineyards, winemaking and ageing of their wines.

Dow’s Quinta Do Bomfim is possibly Dow’s finest vineyard, acquired and planted by the firm in 1896, is situated in one of the most favourable locations in the Upper Douro, indeed, the name is derived from Vale do Bomfim meaning “the well-placed valley”. The whole Quinta Do Bomfim vineyard is “A-rated”, the highest quality grading conferred by the region’s wine regulatory body. The vineyards are now almost entirely planted in varietal batches, meaning each variety may be picked and subsequently vinified separately, thus allowing for each grape’s maximum potential to be achieved. The principal grape varieties planted are: Touriga Franca (30%); Touriga Nacional (20%); Tinta Barroca (13%); Tinta Roriz (13%) and old mixed vines (12%), whilst other grape varieties account for the remaining 12%. Two-thirds of the vineyard is now over 20 years old, whilst one third is between 30 to 40 years old.

When young, Dows Quinta Do Bomfim wines are purple-black, austere, complex and intensely concentrated; they are characterised by very fine peppery tannins. Over the centuries, the winemakers at Bomfim have evolved a style that suits this particular vineyard; fermentations are a little longer, resulting in a drier Port Wine that has become the hallmark of Dow’s Ports. The grapes are normally extremely ripe at the time of picking, a direct result of the low-lying position of the main vineyard. Spice and pepper balance the black chocolate flavours and these are very evident in all Bomfim Ports. Abundant fruit flavours with hints of maple, raisins and ripe blackberries give elegance and poise to this wine. The very high percentage of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional planted on the estate result in the powerful aromas of mint and violets on the finest Ports from Bomfim.

Tasting Notes

From Symington Family Estates: 

“Lovely bright floral freshness with the typical Douro aromas of rock rose as well as the trademark Quinta do Bomfim signature of
eucalyptus, mint and bristling blackberry intensity. The seductive palate offers up succulent, ripe black fruit flavours with strands of liquorice and peppery tannins vying for attention. Immensely pleasurable to drink now but with the substance and structure that will see it develop in bottle for another couple of decades.”
