The Cheese Lady's Recommended Pairings
Ten-year-old Tawny Port from Quinta de Ervamoira
This Tawny port was made of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca and Touriga Franca grapes. The result is a complex Tawny port with aromas of oriental spices and exotic fruit.
Orange-red in colour with a touch of green. A well-rounded, generous aroma with balance and a hint of wine. Fruit aromas include orange, apricot and plum. Vanilla and old Port wine casks make up its woody aromas. This is a fruity tawny variety. In the mouth, one can still taste the fresh fruit surrounded by the ageing in wood. A good structure and perfect balance between fruit and alcohol.
Producer: Quinta de Ervamoira
Family owned – historic estate – on-site museum
Established in 1880 by Adriano Ramos Pinto in 1880, Casa Ramos Pinto shot to fame in the late 19th century as a symbol of quality Portuguese produce, taking the wine markets of South America by storm as well as founding a base of followers throughout Europe. Capitalising on Portugal’s colonial ties with Brazil, Adriano began to export his goods and, by the turn of the 20th century, his produce counted for more than half of all the wine exported to Brazil, a truly staggering feat for such a young company.
To this day, the winery, which also produces port wines and brandy, follows the ethos and philosophy set out by Adriano, the key promise being that they abide by a strict self-production policy, meaning that all grapes used in production are grown on the estate itself.
Interestingly, owing a lot to the innovative approach of Adriano all those years ago, Casa Ramos Pinto also houses a rather unique collection of art objects, many collected during trips to Brazil, which are displayed today in the recently opened museum section on the estate.
