Heiner Lobenberg über:
Van Zellers & Co Late Bottled Vintage Port 2018


Lobenberg: Aus bis zu 90 Jahre alten Reben, kein ganz großer Port aber als LBV in diesem Preisbereich ziemlich perfekt und vor allem fein und archetypisch. 93/100


Parker über: Van Zellers & Co Late Bottled Vintage Port

-- Parker: Parker zu 2015: The 2015 Late Bottled Vintage Port is a field blend with 94 grams of residual sugar. A terrific traditional LBV, this is concentrated, with essence-of-fruit flavor showing. It has notable tannins too, even though it is accessible right now. On opening, it seemed softer, but aeration turned it rather intense. A couple of days later, it was quite powerful for an LBV. It is very capable of aging well, perhaps better than indicated. The fruit makes this terrific, though. It is ripe, expressive and delicious, with a touch of austerity and promises of complexity to come. This is a pretty wonderful and serious LBV. Bottled unfiltered in August 2019 with a long cork. 92/100

Weingut über: Van Zellers & Co Late Bottled Vintage Port

-- Weingut: Van Zellers & Co. LBV Ports are issued from traditional and indigenous hand-picked Red grapes grown in different sub- regions of the Douro. The grapes are foot crushed in old granite “lagares” and ferment in the same “lagares” between 2 to 5 days. When the must reaches the decided residual sugar level, the grape brandy is added to the must to stop the fermentation. After racking and pressing, the newly made Port is then aged, between 36 and 48 months, in old wooden vats, with a capacity between 600 and 10.000 litres. Bottled without any fining, nor filtration, Van Zellers & Co. LBV Port is a traditional unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage, very deep ruby in colour, floral nose, dark cherries, cassis, raspberries, cedar spice, velvety tannins. Elegant and smooth, Van Zellers & Co. LBV Port has a great balance and finesse and a very long and fruity finish.
