2003 Wellington Old Vines Port 500ml
 
2003 is the eleventh vintage of old vine Port Wellington has produced from their estate vineyard. It is a blend of ten different grape varieties, from blocks planted between 1892 and 1924. All the grapes were harvested together and cold soaked for three days before adding yeast. After a five day fermentation, the grapes were pressed and fortified with high proof brandy to arrest fermentation.
 
This rich sweet wine with deep ruby color and aromas of blackberries and chocolate is a wonderful after dinner drink, and is a great match with walnuts or rich cheeses (Stilton is a Peter Wellington favorite). Very enjoyable now, it does have the structure to age for many years, but will, in time, throw a deposit and need decanting.

 

2006 Wellington Old Vines Port 500ml
 
Very fruity. Intense cherries (cordial) and chocolate aroma. Rich, sweet flavor.   Rich, full mouthfeel. Cocoa and strawberry finish.
 
 
2007 Port, Estate Old Vines 500ml
 
Wellington Vineyards has been making Port since 1992, when only a couple of other wineries in Sonoma or Napa were making Port.  Working with the same grapes from their ancient vines, they've had ample opportunity to fine tune their techniques.  They coferment many different grape varieties in the Portuguese tradition , from blocks planted between 1892 and 1924.  Of all Wellington's winemaking techniques, they are a little more secretive about their Port than anything else regarding yeast strains, fermentation temperatures, maceration, and spirits addition.
 
The 2007 vintage yielded a Port with intense flavor and tannin.  In order to allow the tannin to mellow, it was held in barrel longer than usual.  The end product is a rich, concentrated, supple Port with lots of blackberry-like fruit.

Winery Details

Wellington Vineyards

Founded:
1986
Owner:
Peter Wellington
Location:
Glen Ellen, CA
Wellington Vineyards is owned Peter Wellington. Peter's father John purchased the winery site in 1986. At the time, it consisted of 20 acres of old vines and a few decrepit old fruit and nut trees. Replanting of part of the old vineyard and orchard started in 1988. The winery was completed in time for the 1989 crush. We grow approximately half the grapes we use and purchase the remainder, primarily from small, unique vineyards.
 
The estate vineyards consist of 21 acres, 8 of which are 85 to 117 years old. There are 24 different varieties in the old vineyard, with the most common being Zinfandel, Carignan, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache and Syrah. In addition, there are 10 acres of eleven to sixteen year old vines that consist of Merlot, Chardonnay, Marsanne, and Syrah. We grow more Merlot than anything else. Three more acres were replanted in 2001, predominantly to Syrah, Zinfandel and Grenache.
