Fine guess, but wrong.

Guesses so far: Messias; Alves de Sousa; Romariz; a non-guess of Quinta d. Popa but nonetheless marked as wrong; Infantado.

Clue? Distinctive name, but suboptimal for this market.

Has its own chapter. Hence not obscure.

No. You ignored the clue.

Another clue: “Quinta da”.

Does not begin “Quinta da”. Nor does it heed previous clue. And mis-spelt. {Shake head and sigh emoticon.}

One of those criticisms was fair - I'd missed the "Quinta da" clue. However, the "mis-spelling" was the reason why I felt it meet the requirements of the previous clue.

Quinta da Revolta?

Drunk a mite before its time, but a well made full-bodied ʟʙᴠ about which I failed to take a note.

A similar question: What lesser-known white port am I drinking right now?

A 1989 colheita? The house of which I have forgotten?

I would guess you're thinking of the Barão de Vilar '89 white colheita - but no, not that.

Nope, not Dalva, Andresen, or Kopke.

More clues:
It's a ...yrs old white tawny, from Quinta da ....
How old, and where from?
