Wine Making
Vinyard Wine Maker Vinification
OFFLEY VINTAGE 2003 is the flagship wine of this centennial Porto house, a special category red Porto, of a single outstanding year, selected for its extraordinary quality to be matured in bottle, favouring all its unique characteristics and potential. Gift of nature, they are shaped by human skill and a fine winemaking expertise, established almost 300 years ago. - OFFLEY VINTAGE 2003 was produced by the traditional Porto wine method. The hand-picked grapes underwent stalk-removal and crushing before fermentation, under controlled temperature, with skin maceration so as to extract the best components. The addition of wine alcohol at the ideal moment set the balance between the wine's body and its bouquet. The wines, naturally sweet and rich, were deeply red and full-bodied, with great power and aromatic concentration.
Ageing
After the harvest, the wines remained in the Douro until the following spring, when they were taken to Vila Nova de Gaia and entered Offley's centuries-old lodges for ageing as required by Porto wine traditional ageing system. The wines selected for this OFFLEY VINTAGE 2003 were carefully tasted and analysed by the oenology team that confirmed the excellence of the wines and prepared the final blend. The final wine was bottled in the summer of 2005 without previous treatment.
