2015 Heritage

Post by JacobH » 17:09 Sat 26 Sep 2020

I wouldn’t normally post such a brief note on :tpf: but the temptation of adding a new shipper to the list of abbreviations is too strong!

This is made by Família Correia Dos Santos who seem to be based on the North side of the Douro, just East of Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira. Whilst the bottle is branded “Porto Heritage”, their website suggests that the company is called just Heritage with the table wines branded “Douro Heritage”. A pretty full range of Ports is offered including VP from most years since 2011 and full sets of aged tawnies, whites and dry whites.

This 2015 VP had a good, good Porty-nose with good rounded tannins and a decent amount of acidity. It was very enjoyable and will be interesting to see what it is like in future.

Hi Jacob, did you find this with a UK stockist? As my B&B is called The Heritage I am interested in seeing if this brand can be a house offering.

No- sorry- I tried this at Portologia in Porto. Based on their tiny online presence (Portologia seems to be the only place to stock them), I would be very surprised if they have any distributors and your best bet would be to email them and see if they'll ship you some direct. Or offer to be their UK rep. if you fancy diversifying! ;-)
