Lemos & Van Zeller
www.valedonamaria.com

Following a long family tradition of over 230 years (the original Van Zeller & Co. was founded in 1780 even though the commercial aspect virtually disappeared after 1930s)  Cristiano van Zeller has been making Port Wines in the Douro region since 1982.  In these already long years of winemaking, tasting, and enjoying different Ports, he tried to find some blends that he would be keen to have in his cellar for an everyday glass.

 

2005 CV Curriculum Vitae Douro Tinto

Only 1500 bottles of this deep dark and delicious red were produced. Eleven cases made their way to BC.

"Inky and rich, with a surplus of dark chocolate, blackberry and mocha flavors. Powerful but balanced. Has a long finish of French roast and mineral, with plenty of Asian spice in the mix. Drink now through 2014."

Van Zeller 10 Year Old Tawny Port

Cristiano is producing once again the 10 year old Tawny Port that this family has always been famous for.  A delicious mothful with notes of soft red fruits, a touch of spiciness and hints of nuttiness on the ample and most silky palate.
