From the Quintas of the Douro Valley comes the fine sweetness of the world famous port wine. The oldest controlled wine-growing region in the world shines with a unique creation of world fame - and traditionally stamps the grapes by foot and music, just like hundreds of years ago. It was the British, Dutch and Germans who introduced port wine to the great stage of the wine world. But the dessert wine is typically Portuguese lust for life, between songs, sun and slate. Port wine is something special, whether Ruby, Tawny, White Port or Rosé. First-class port wine is available at VINELLO, your wine store for fine wines for sweet life.

Many years of port wine expertise: Taylor's, Niepoort, Churchills & Trenz

The red wine, rarely also white wine, comes from the Douro valley in the interior of Portugal. In warm summers and cold winters, the vineyards along the river grow the approximately 30 grapes approved for the popular Portuguese wine. Among them Tinta Roriz (a synonym for the German Tempranillo), Gouveio, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francia, Tinta Cão, Tinta Barroca and Síria. However, the name Port Wine refers to the port city of Porto, where port wine is traditionally stored in the large wineries, some of which have gigantic barrels. From Porto the ships, loaded with the durable port, set sail in all directions. 

And there lies the origin of why port wine is what it is today. A sweet wine that seems to last forever and can easily cope with long crossings. By sea, Vinho do Porto reaches all the ports of mainland Europe, and with it the tastes of connoisseurs. The English, Dutch, and Germans were greedy for the fruity sweet wine from the Douro Valley and built up branches in the port district of Porto. Port wine firmly in the hands of international investors. Taylor's, Niepoort, Churchills, Trenz - names that sound little Portuguese, but with first-class and long-standing expertise in production. 


Production, types, taste of port wine (Vinho do Porto)

Fortification turns wine into port wine. During fermentation, high-proof brandy is added to the must, in a ratio of 1 to 4, to kill the yeast cells and thus stop the fermentation. What remains is the residual sugar, which manifests itself in the fine sweetness of the port. When the port wine reaches its prescribed alcohol level of 19 to 22%, the sweet wine is ready for storage. First for half a year in the Douro Valley, then in the cellars near Portos for at least two more years. In the large wooden barrels, which hold up to 550 liters, the port wine matures until the first tasting, where the further procedure is crystallized.

If the vintage appears mediocre, there is a high risk of loss of flavor during long storage and the port wine becomes a Ruby. Ruby Port remains in the barrel for a short time and is then bottled ready to drink.

Better vintages gain in aroma and taste through longer storage. The port therefore remains in the barrel until it is either filled into the pipe, a small barrel for faster oxidation, or bottled. Depending on the container, the port wine matures to different classes. From the pipe, for example, Old Tawny and Colheita are produced, and in the bottle it develops into LBV (Late Bottled Vintage), Crusted Port and Vintage Character.

Absolute top vintages, if recognized by the Port Wine Institute, are considered vintage. Ports of this quality class are bottled as soon as possible and stored for at least 10 years. The taste of vintage port wines develops over decades.

The differences between the port wine varieties are therefore in the time and container of storage. Depending on this, the character of the port wine varies:

  • Ruby is a young, ruby red and fruity port wine, which matures in a wooden barrel and is sold after only a few years in bottles. Its bouquet presents fruity berries and forest aromas.

  • Tawny matures longer, both in wooden barrels and in small pipes. The amber to golden body of the dessert wine, works with nuances of dry fruits, nuts and plums, resulting from contact with air.

  • Colheita is considered a speciality and matures for at least 7 years in wooden barrels, giving it a very spicy note. Unlike many other port wines, Colheita is not a cuvée from several vintages.

From the top category comes the Vintage Port 2011 from Churchill's Estate, with a deep dark red color play and a complex bouquet. Ripe dark berries with strong spice and nuances of fine chocolate, provide a balanced experience between taste and structure. Suitable for dry fruits and sweet pastries or simply for storage - for several decades.

Things to know about Port Wine
Was ist Portwein?
Portwein ist ein portugiesischer Dessertwein aus dem Douro-Tal, benannt nach der Hafenstadt Porto, von der aus der Portwein verschifft wurde. Portwein, auch Port oder Vinho do Porto, ist ein Wein aus meist roten Trauben, dem bei der Gärung 77% Vol. Weinbrand hinzugefügt wird, um die Gärung zu stoppen. Der verbleibende Restzucker ist verantwortlich für den süßen Charakter des Portweins.
Was ist der beste Portwein?
Der vielleicht beste Portwein trägt ein stolzes Preisschild von etwa 100.000 € und stammt aus dem Hause Niepoort. Für alle, denen das nötige Kleingeld für derart kostspielige Portweine fehlt, lohnt sich dann ein Blick auf die Vintage Ports. Diese gelten gemeinhin als die besten Portweine. Nur herausragende Jahrgänge werden zu Vintage-Jahrgängen erklärt. Aber Achtung: bis die Vintage-Portweine ihr volles Potenzial erreicht haben, sollten sie eine Weile lagern - gut und gerne 10 bis 50 Jahre.
Was ist Tawny Port?
Tawny Port ist ein Portwein-Stil, der aus jungen Jahrgängen besteht. Der Tawny Port reift in einem großen Tank für 2 bis 3 Jahre und wird darauffolgend in die sogenannten Pipes-Holzfässer umgefüllt. Hier erhält der Port mehr Luftkontakt, was sich durch nussige Aromen im Geschmack äußert.
Was ist Ruby Port?
Ruby Port ist ein Portwein-Stil, der sich aus jungen Jahrgängen zusammensetzt und eine Lagerung von 2 bis 3 Jahren in einem großen Tank durchläuft. Er zeichnet sich durch seine rubinrote Farbe und fruchtigen Geschmack aus.
Wie trinkt man Portwein richtig?
Je nach Klasse wird der Portwein unterschiedlich serviert. Weißer Port wird vor dem Essen gekühlt getrunken. Ruby und Tawny Port passen als Dessertwein bei Zimmertemperatur. Optimal benutzt man ein halb gefülltes tulpenförmiges Glas, sodass sich die Aromen ideal entfalten können. Zum Aperitif wird dem Portwein gerne ein Spritzer Zitrone hinzugefügt.
Welche Gläser nimmt man für Portwein?
Ein Tulpenglas, auch bekannt als Digestifglas, eignet sich am besten, um die volle Aromakonzentration im Glas zu erhalten.
Wie schmeckt Portwein?
Charakteristisch für den Portwein ist die unverkennbare Süße. Je nach Ausbau entstehen im Port noch weitere vielfältige Geschmäcker. Ruby Port besticht durch intensive Waldfrüchte und fruchtige Beeren. Tawny ist weniger fruchtig ausgebaut und äußert sich durch Nuancen von Pflaumen, Nüssen, Marzipan und Datteln.
Wozu trinkt man Portwein?
Portwein gilt als Dessertwein und wird daher oft nach dem Essen gereicht. Die besten Portweine komplementieren alle Arten von Speisen. Speziell Käse- und Nussvariationen ergänzen den Port.
Wie teuer ist eine Flasche Portwein?
Das kommt ganz auf den Portwein an. Bereits unter 10€ findet man Ports, allerdings oftmals in 0,2 Liter Fläschchen. Ordentliche Qualitäten erhält man zwischen 20 und 50€. Nach oben sind kaum Grenzen gesetzt. Der teuerste Portwein der Welt kostet circa 100.000 €.
Was ist der Unterschied zwischen Sherry und Portwein?
Sherry und Portwein sind beides aufgespritete Weine, also Weine, die mit Alkohol verstärkt werden. Damit hören die Gemeinsamkeiten allerdings schon auf. Die größten Unterschiede bestehen in der Herkunft und den Rebsorten. Denn der Portwein aus dem portugiesischen Douro-Tal wird sowohl aus roten als auch weißen Varietäten gewonnen, während der spanische Sherry ausschließlich aus weißen Rebsorten erzeugt wird.
Wie lagert man Portwein?
Portwein lässt sich gut lagern. Gerade Vintage Ports sind bekannt dafür, erst nach Jahrzehnten das volle Potenzial entfaltet zu haben. Der Lagerplatz sollte allgemein dunkel sein und eine konstante Temperatur von 10-12° C haben. Portwein wird liegend gelagert.
Wie lange hält sich eine offene Flasche Portwein?
Vintage und Crusted Port sollte man nach dem Öffnen erst einmal dekantieren. Danach ist es ratsam, den Portwein schnell zu verzehren. Tawny und Colheita Port sind dagegen bei Luftzufuhr stabil und können noch Wochen nach dem Öffnen haltbar sein.
Welcher Portwein ist süß?
Alle Portweine sind süß durch den Restzucker, der bei der Gärung zurückbleibt. Somit gilt Portwein als Süßwein.
Ist Portwein trocken?
Portwein gehört zu den Süßweinen, hat einen hohen Restzuckergehalt und ist somit nicht trocken. Jedoch gibt es Dry und Chip Dry Portweine, deren Restzuckergehalt geringer ist als bei herkömmlichen Ports, die jedoch immer noch vergleichsweise süß sind.
