WINEMAKER'S NOTES

The 2005 Port is made from traditional Portuguese varietals: Alvarahao, Bastardo, Souzao, Tina Cao, Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) and Touriga.  These six classic Portuguese varieties used by Renwood flourish in the Sierra Foothills.  Selected lots from our best barrels make up the final blend.  It exhibits cinnamon and dry floral aromas with hints of cocoa.  On the palate, it displays dark fruit with nuances of orange rind and gingerbread.

VINTAGE

The growing season of 2005 started out with a normal spring, but the record winter and spring rainfall gave plenty of early growth.  A hot early summer continued the growth and berry development, and a large crop was the result.  The weather remained dry throughout the harvest, resulting in perfect fruit condition.

FERMENTATION and AGING

All of the grapes we use are native to Portugal, except the Tinta Roriz, which is originally from Spain, where it is known as Tempranillo.  Renwood’s Vintage Port is made in the traditional way:  a short time in small neutral cooperage, the then bottled.  After fermentation and fortification, we chose to age the final blend in neutral American oak barrels for three years to impart softness to the highly concentrated fruit character of this wine.
