Quinta do Infantado Vintage Port 2011, classic style vintage Port, foot trodden, old vines, drier than most wines, ideal for long ageing. All the Infantado vineyards are class A (the best in Douro Valley) and are planted on schist soils. Infantado owns vineyard plots ranging from 1.5 to 6 hectares in the Serra de Baixo, Serra Douro and Castelos where the grapes for the Vintage are grown. These are old vines planted at an altitude of between 200-350m above sea level. Fermentation was longer than many other houses, resulting in drier wines. The vintage Ports are generally aged for about 21 months in 100 year old 220 hectolitre wooden casks. These wines are stunning, lush and velvety in Texture, they drink beautifully when youthful, under 10 years old showing bright rich fruit and balance. With age, 15 years plus, they will become much more special. The 2011 vintage was certainly one of the best of all time in the Douro with near perfect growing conditions.
This wine reflects the vintage, absolutely delicious.

This winery was established in 1816 by D. Pedro IV, the Portuguese crown heir, as a place where they could collect taxes, which were then paid in grapes or wine. This is the origin of the Quinta’s name: Infantado derives from Infante, the Portuguese for Prince. The Roseira family has owned Quinta do Infantado for over a century. Joao Roseira looks after the vineyards and oversees the wine making and his sister-in-law Paula looks after the marketing of their wines. Absolutely delicious LBV Port with a silky, velvety texture which always impresses the drinker. All pressing at Infantado is done by feet in Lagares as tradition dictates, the fermentation is then stopped with the addition of 77% proof grape spirit and then the port is aged for 45 months in huge 100 year old casks. Infantado is relatively unknown Quinta but the quality is exceptional, i urge you to try this Port!
