The very hot climate through the summer at this vineyard results in highly complex and concentrated wines but very low yields. Colors of the musts in the fermentation tanks are always purple-black due to the very high skin to juice ratio. The old vines add further to the intensity of the wine as they make up a very large percentage of the vineyard. The resulting wine can be described as being the essence of Vintage Port, with powerful wild red-fruit flavours, leading into rich black chocolate notes, the whole balanced by complex, attractive and peppery tannins. As with Quinta do Bomfim, the best Ports from Senhora de Ribeira are used to make Dow's Vintage Ports in the great and rare 'Declared' years. In the good year's when Dow's does not 'declare' a Vintage, the best wines of 'The Lady of the River' are bottled as Dow's Quinta de Senhora da Ribeira Vintage Port. They will tend to mature a little earlier than the very rare 'Declared' years, but can be every bit as good as some other Vintage Ports.
