Vintage Ports are made exclusively from the grapes of one harvest. Bottled after two years in casks, it is in the bottle that the long, slow, ageing process transforms the young wine into a magnificent Vintage Port. A Romariz Vintage is only declared in years of optimum quality. These demanding standards mean that a Romariz Vintage might be declared perhaps only two or three times in a decade.

Store and Serve Advices:
The ideal storage conditions are up to 16 ° C, and most importantly at a constant temperature. The bottle should be lying in order to keep the cork moist and thus ensure an effective seal. Place the bottle standing a few hours before settling to allow precipitation of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. After opening the bottle, transfer the wine into the decanter in a slow and steady, giving much attention to it just the wine, not the sediment is poured.
Walnuts are an excellent accompaniment Vintage Port, as well as the blue-veined cheese and other cheese for intense flavor. Dried fruits such as apricots and figs also harmonize very well. Alternatively, you can drink with nothing and appreciate their intense and complex flavors in a cup not too small, and surrounded by good company.
