Mature and hard cheese
Odd as it sounds, the best soils for grapes are the less fertile ones. A soil that’s too rich, instead of nourishing the vines, can make their life too easy, and this results in a wine with a weak character. (vivino)
This is a wine of exceptional quality and elegance, a CASA BURMESTER classic that is made from a single harvest - a "Vintage Tawny" - aged in small 550-litre oak barrels in Vila Nova de Gaia Cellars. It is bottled, at the very least, after seven years and in accordance with demand.
In 1730, Henry Burmester and John Nash founded Burmester & Nash in London, a cereal trading company. They moved to Vila Nova de Gaia and in 1750 began shipping port wine to the British Isles and the rest of Europe. The family name originates from the German word 'Burgmeester', meaning 'mayor' - as the family came from the small north Germany city of Moelln.
The firm was dissolved at the end of the 18th century, when Henry Burmester Jr. and his two sons, Fredrick and Edward, set up a new port wine company, H.Burmester & Sons.
