This Burmester Jockey Club Reserve is a beautiful Tawny of at least 7 years old. The port is made by carefully selecting and blending port wines that mature in oak barrels for a number of years, at least 7 years. The port has a clear garnet color with orange hues. A broad, perfumed nose, with intense aromas of dried fruit and spices, notes of toffee and a hint of toast. On the palate, full of ointment and complex, while revealing remarkable elegance that extends to a lasting finale.

The family name "Burmester" comes from the German word "Burgmeester" (Burgemeester) - since the family came from the small town of Moelln in northern Germany. In 1730 Henry Burmester and John Nash founded a grain trade in London under the name Burmester & Nash. In 1750, the company moved to Vila Nova de Gaia and began shipping Port to the British Isles and the rest of Europe. The company was very active in London. The commercial and financial activities of the Burmester family were highly appreciated in London. The most famous street in the Wimbledon district is the 'Burmester Road'.

The vineyards are located at an altitude of up to 600 meters and have a bottom of schist-like sandstone (greywacke), in some places interspersed with granite. The rows of vines are traditionally planted in horizontal terraces on the slope. More recently, vines have been planted vertically on the slope ("vinha ao alt").

This port is, when cooled, a perfect and great aperitif. The richness of aromas and flavors is actually ideal with any kind of dessert, but it is particularly good with spicy pumpkin pudding, pasties with pear and raspberry and with nuts, dried fruits and soft cheeses. The wine is best kept in a cool and dry place, protected from light and temperature fluctuations, and the bottle must stand upright. In the course of time it is logical that sediment forms on the bottom of a bottle of port wine. Once opened, we recommend drinking the port within 4 to 6 months. Serve between 14 and 16 ° C.

Vineyard for Burmester Porto DOP Jockey Club Tawny Porto Reserve

Burmester (Vila Nova de Gaia) - 2023 Alles wat u moet weten VOORDAT je gaat  - Tripadvisor

The silence is only disturbed by a passing train. The river flows slowly between the rocky banks and produces a landscape that is extraordinary and stunningly beautiful. The Portuguese poet Miguel Torga described the Douro as "an abundance of nature". Burmester testifies to this. Schist and granite. Stone and dust. The stone 'olive lagar' (old press) is proof that the fertile land was already cultivated during the time of the Roman empire.

Burmester's estate belongs to the tough people who have cultivated it for centuries. The grape varieties grown here are the traditional varieties of the region. A compromise between nature and human intervention is continuously made here, particularly aimed at preserving the biodiversity of the vineyard. The harvest at Burmester is an event in itself. It starts early to avoid overripe grapes. The crushing of the grapes is done very carefully to maintain the purity of the fruit. The tannic structure is preserved - the tannins are there, but they are refined and elegant. The maturation phases are balanced, preferably in oak, with the aim of integrating, never taking out.

Burmester wines are characterized by fruity and balsamic notes, fine acidity and the necessary elegance to age gracefully. Like the place where the grapes are grown in the first place, located on the left bank of the Douro River, between S. João da Pesqueira and Vila Nova de Foz Côa in the famous Douro Superior sub-region, it benefits from a microclimate that its wines gives character. The vines are spread over 100 hectares of both traditional and modern terraces, stretching from the top of the hill (at an altitude of 300 meters) to the Douro River. The main grape varieties are Touriga Nacional (about 50%), Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinto Cão. There are also smaller plots of Tinta Barroca and Tinta Amarela.
