PRODUCER: C. Da Silva (Vinhos) SA is a traditional Port wine House. Founded in 1862, its present name was defined in the first decades of the twentieth century, when Mr. Clemente da Silva received the company through marriage. At that time to develop export markets, his first steps headed toward Brazil and North America, but other markets soon followed and DALVA is now present in Europe and Asia as well.
WINEMAKING: It represents two per cent of a year's total Port production, only the first quality grapes are used (A and B). Presenting outstanding organoleptic characteristics, they must be very full-bodied and deep in colour. Vintage ports are aged for a maximum of two and a half years before bottling, and generally, require a minimum of three to four years before serving and another ten to thirty years in an average of ageing in the bottle, before reaching what is considered a proper drinking age.
TASTING NOTE: Rich in colour and tannins showing its best in the amazing persistence and the ripe fruits aromas. It presents an enormous ageing and aromatic potential with floral notes and red fruits. Exceptional body and silky structure of the tannins which leads to a long and exuberant taste.
FOOD PAIRING: Perfect for drinking on its own or with blue or other strong and mature cheeses.
