"Powerful, with plenty of acidity to the intense cherry, violet, raspberry and wild plum flavors. Offers a sinewy texture, showing a focused spiciness and a long, mineral- and chocolate-filled finish. Sleek and refined. Best from 2040 through 2060. -KM" (12/13)

"This is a very dry, firm wine that's solidly tannic but never harsh. The wine combines weight and ripe black fruit in a powerful expression of dense vintage Port from this estate in the Upper Douro. Acidity shines through the density on the finish. Age for many decades. -RV" (11/13)

"A young vintage Port with plums and berries and hints of flowers. Medium body, medium sweetness. Clean finish. One for early drinking. Better in 2017." (05/13)
"Quinta do Vale Meao Vintage Port 2011 is a deeply colored
wine, with a powerful attack, full of intensity where one easily
can find fresh fruity notes. It is very well structured so we believe
it will age beautifully. Its final blend is composed of 60% Touriga
Franca, 20% Touriga Nacional, 5% Tinta Barroca, 5% Tinta Roriz,
5% Sousao and 5% of other varieties."
"This is a vintage port produced solely from the exceptional vineyards of the
Quinta do Vale Meao in the Douro Superior. This historic Estate, founded in 1877 by the legendary Port producer Dona Antonia
Adelaide Ferreira and now owned by her great great grandson Francisco Javier
de Olazabal, is situated in the wild upper reaches of the Douro and has
consistently produced top quality grapes."
"In 1998 Francisco Javier de Olazabal resigned as President of A.A. Ferreira S.A. to
dedicate himself, together with his Oenologist son Francisco de Olazabal y
Nicolau de Almeida, to producing, ageing and marketing the wines from the
Quinta through a new company, F. Olazabal & Filhos Lda. Vines cover 85 hectares of the property, over three distinct soils (alluvial, granite
and schist), which offer a uniquely complex terroir for a single estate."
"The unfortified wines of this estate (Quinta do Vale Meao and Meandro de Vale
Meao) already count as amongst the most sought after in all Portugal and have
deserved international acclaim. 2000 was their first Estate bottled Vintage Port, followed by 2001, 2003, 2004, 2007,
2008, and now 2011." - Winery
"After a long, cold and rainy winter, spring arrived with the average
rainfall for the year fulfilled â about 400 mm. This situation allowed an
earlier than normal but fantastic bud break, with a promising yield in
view. The rainy days occurred throughout the spring causing some
downy mildew risks, not significant in this estate, but causing severe
damage in the region. The water levels in the soil after a rainy winter
and spring allowed the plants to go through summer without severe
stress, but the early bud break date forced us to start the harvest on
the 23rd of August. A few days later we had 15 mm of rain in two
consecutive days, which was beneficial to balance the maturation
of Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, picked in the second week
of September. Up to the end of the vintage weâve enjoyed perfect
weather, sunny and mild, which allowed us to harvest slowly and to
choose the ideal timing for picking the different varieties." - Winery
"We picked the grapes by grape variety and ensured raisined
and unhealthy bunches were separated. They were then
crushed, cooled, and fermented in our traditional granite
âlagaresâ until fortification. The resulting Port was racked into
large vats, where it was left to mature, until the final blend was
made in April 2013." - Winery
