Ramos Pinto 10 Year Old Tawny Port is unusual for a tawny Port in that is comes from just one of Ramos Pinto’s properties, Quinta de Ervamoira. Ramos Pinto was founded in 1880 by brothers Antonio and Adriano and has always had a pioneering spirit. In the early 20th century it became noted for its innovative and enterprising commercial strategies including the distinctive art nouveau advertising campaign. Ramos Pinto is run today by the heirs of these two energetic vintners: Jorge Rosas, Export Director and João Nicolau de Almeida, the oenologist who was responsible for officially identifying the five key grape varieties. In 1990 Ramos Pinto became part of the Champagne Louis Roederer group, which shares a similar family owned history and has since enjoyed significant investment and further improvements in quality.
Ramos Pinto 10 Year Old Tawny Port (also known as RP10) is made from a blend of tawny Ports from wines made at Quinta de Ervamoira. The skill of the blender is to allow the expression of both the younger and older wines in the blend. The new wines make it robust and fresh while the oldest wines give it complexity and ‘lineage’. It is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca. Residual Sugar 106 g/L.
