Quinta da Gricha Vintage Port 2003
With its cooler North facing location on the south bank of the river Douro, Quinta da Gricha has produced a spectacular SIngle Quinta Vintage in 2003.
The wine is very dark, almost black in colour with a typical Gricha nose of fresh concentrated blueberries. The taste is more one dimensional than the Churchill’s Vintage Port blend but there is a soft, luscious mouth-filling flavour of rich berries with excellent natural acidity and tannins.
Quinta da Gricha is located on the South bank of the river Douro between Pinhão and Tua with a North facing aspect. This Vintage Port was sourced from the very old vineyards (av. Age of vines of 50 plus years).
A field blend of old vineyards including many grape varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cão.
Approachable from 2013, this Port Wine has a Peak drinking condition from 2023 – 2028.
During the first six months, the young Port spent the winter months at Quinta da Gricha in our “tonéis” being then brought down to our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia where it was stored in a stainless steel tank until being bottled.
