Dow'S Late Bottled Vintage

Dow'S Late Bottled Vintage

Ref: A806611

Today Dow is 100% owned and managed by the fourth generation of the Symington family. This continuity is unique amongst the historic British Port Companies, with no less than 7 members of the family involved in every aspect of the business from vineyard to cellar.

Peter, Paul, Johnny, Rupert, Dominic and Charles Symington can all be found at work in the lodges in Gaia or in the Douro vineyards any working day throughout the year. The seventh member of the family, Clare, works in London managing Vintage Port sales for the family. This is truly a family owned and run business.

Members of the fifth generation of Symingtons have already been involved in harvesting and vintage time work in order to learn the essence of great wine making. They, like their four previous generations have grown up among the vineyards and hills of the remote and beautiful Douro valley. The family’s experience and knowledge of these vineyards is unsurpassed.

The result is evident in every bottle of Dow’s Port produced by the Symington family.

Late Bottled Vintage (LBV) is a wine from a single year produced from grapes grown on some of Dow's finest vineyards.

Bottled between the 4th and 6th year after the harvest, this style of wine is ready for immediate consumption and should not require decanting.

Dow’s LBV is a full rich Port with spicy ripe fruit flavours and an elegant aromatic nose. It is well rounded on the palate and has the traditional Dow’s drier finish which makes it one of the finest LBV Ports available.

Vacqueyras Cuve Azalais 2012
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.

Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Deep coloured with a bouquet of ripe cherry fruit, this is a very approachable wine with the emphasis on ripeness and "crunchy" fruit with excellent balance.
