Tasting note Crasto LBV
Deep red port with the scent of fine red fruit, blackberries, plums and some cocoa. The taste is powerful, balanced, full and soft. Delicious with ripe, hard cheese or fine cakes.
Quinta da Crasto is the domain of the Roquette family and makes various port wines exclusively from grapes from its own vineyards. The grapes are traditionally and gently pressed with their feet in so-called lagares, shallow concrete tubs where fermentation also starts. That happens mechanically with less quality-conscious producers, but the traditional way is better and prevents the seeds and stalks from releasing aggressive tannin. Wine alcohol is added at some point to stop the fermentation and the residual sugar in the grape determines the sweetness of the port. Crasto, one of the 'Douro boys', is considered one of the top producers and makes beautiful, pure and not so sweet ports. The LBV port is an 'almost' vintage quality that ripens a bit longer on casks and is therefore immediately taste-perfect immediately after bottling.
