Maury lies in a schistous valley to the west of Perpignan in the Rousillon. Fortified wines are made here from Grenache Noir, Grenache Gris and Carignan. These 500 litre barrels have lain undisturbed since the early days of the co-operative. The mother wine is topped up each vintage with a selection of the best Maury. Gerard Gauby has tasted all the barrels; 450 50cl bottles have been drawn from each barrel selected, and bottled by hand without fining or filtration.
Ancient vines, hand picked and 100% foot trodden and fermented in the circular granite lagares at Vale de Mendiz. This wine ages 4-6 years in large old oak vats (opposed to Vintage, that ages 2-3 years). LBV fills the gap between the rubies and the vintage ports since a Ruby Port should be drunk quite young and a great Vintage Port may need 15 to 20 years to really open up and show its splendour.
Delicate, Fresh, fruity with notes of white flowers, honey and vanilla, savours of mandarin and dried apricots.
The Organic Bioma Vinha Velha is a single vineyard Vintage Port, rather than a single Quinta. The “Vinha Velha” refers to the extraordinary age of the vines at Vinha da Pisca, mostly exceeding 80 years old. Offered in very small quantities, this is a style of Vintage Port more akin to the very best English-bottled Vintage Ports of 1970 and before.
