Deep purple with an opaque centre. Exuberant aromas of blackberry and liquorice are complemented by subtle notes of cocoa and mint. There is also a floral element (roses), which reflects the significant Touriga Franca component of the blend. On the palate, the wine is full and broad with remarkable concentration and intensity, held together by a fine structure, which is underpinned by fine, peppery tannins. The wine has a long, spicy finish with Dow’s trademark drier edge.

This Port is bottled ready to drink and does not benefit from further cellaring. Once open, it will keep in fine condition for up to a month. An excellent dessert wine to enjoy on its own or with chocolate desserts or semi-cured/cured cheeses (Cheddar, Manchego and others).

"We are a curious amalgam of nationalities, a mixture of rationality and Scottish dedication, to which we add the English common sense and spontaneity, emotion and natural Portuguese talent."


There is a natural affinity between wine and family. The long-term vision, beyond commitment and dedication over the generations, are essential to the success of a family wine company. A newly planted vineyard needs time to produce great wines and often requires the work of a lifetime to produce the best results. The Symington family, with Scottish, English and Portuguese ancestry, has been present in the Douro for five generations - since 1882 - but if we follow the lineage of the family through the great-grandmother of the present generation, the Symington connection to Douro wines goes back to time 14 generations, transporting us until the middle of the seventeenth century and the very beginnings of the history of Port wine.
