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.

The wine has a dark red appearance and lighter red hues on the rim, with wonderful aromas of dark chocolate and a subtle floral character which enrobes the deep fruits of the forest notes. On the palate it is superbly balanced and fresh, with a most seductive middle palate and good extract, followed by a superb spirit-driven finish.
