Description

Acquired by George Warre for Dow’s in 1896, the name of the property derived from Vale do Bom-fim, ‘the well-placed valley’, as the area around the village of Pinhão was then known. In 1912, An-drew James Symington became a partner in Dow’s and made Quinta do Bomfim his Douro family home. Since then generations of Symington winemakers have worked the vineyards and enjoyed stays at this beautiful property. One of the finest Douro estates, Quinta do Bomfim is sited in the heart of the Upper Douro Valley, ideally located in an area of transition between temperate and Mediterranean climates. Predominantly south-facing with ample solar exposure, the schist slopes are arranged in vineyard terraces which have yielded Dow’s memorable Vintage Ports for over a century. All the grapes harvested at the property are taken to the small on-site winery where they are trodden in mod-ern lagares, faithful to the method developed over hundreds of years which continues to make the finest Ports.

TASTING NOTES

The grapes are normally extremely ripe at the time of picking giving spice and pepper to balance the black chocolate flavours as found in all Bomfim Ports. Abundant fruit flavours with hints of maple, raisins and ripe blackberries give elegance and poise to this wine. The very high percentage of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional planted on the estate result in the powerful aromas of mint and violets on the finest Ports from Bomfim.

FOOD PAIRING
Dark chocolate desserts as well as semi-cured and cured cheeses like Cheddar and Manchego.
