Colour

Dense, vibrant and very young, with some purple reflections.

Intense, fine and elegant on the nose. Very ripe aromas prevail: sour cherry, delicious dark chocolate and a hint of oak.

Palate

Well-structured in the mouth and full of ripe mineral fruit, with round tannins and a wonderfully satisfying finish.

Serving Suggestion

Serve at 18 degrees Celsius. If possible decant the Port first, since as it was not filtered it may throw a deposit.

Food Matching

Ideal with hard mountain cheeses and other full fat cheeses, dry ‘patisserie’, wine poached fruits and dried fruits and nuts.For the more adventurous, try it with pepper steak as well as chocolate desserts!

Cellaring Potential

The 2005 Ramos Pinto Late Bottled Vintage Port is excellent drinking now but will also develop very well in bottle.

Winemaking Note

The grapes are harvested by hand and taken to the winery where the foot treading takes place. Fermentation lasts from 3 to 5 days, resulting in an excellent extract. The wine is then aged at Vila Nova de Gaia, in vats with a capacity of approximately 15,000 litres. The final blend was put together in April, 2009 and bottled in November of the same year. Late Bottled Vintage 2005 is a traditional LBV, unfiltered and not subject to any hot or cold treatments, therefore preserving the full potential of the fruit while allowing for long ageing.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Adriano Ramos Pinto founded the house in 1880 and the excellent quality of the wines soon gained recognition on the export market. Adriano’s business foresight made him something of a pioneer in the Port market whereby he supported the promotion of his wines with a quality advertising campaign based on posters designed by some of the most famous artists of his time.

Today, as majority shareholders, the Louis Roederer family group perpetuates the policy of quality by way of substantial investment in advanced technology and viticultural methods combined with respect for tradition and service.

Among Port producers, Ramos Pinto has the largest holding of estate vineyards proportionate to wine produced. The Quintas are located in the delimited areas of Cima-Corgo for Quinta do Bom-Retiro and Quinta do Urtiga, and Douro Superior for Quinta da Ervamoira and Quinta dos Bons Ares. In 1976, RamosPinto began a detailed and ongoing research project to select the best grape varieties for the production of quality Port and table wines. Five varietals selected by Ramos Pinto were subsequently adopted by the Authorities for all new plantings in the region: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca,Tinta Roriz and Tinto Cao.
