The Dows Midnight Port is a wine from Dow's Port, located in Vila Nova de Gaia (Portugal). Dow's is owned by the Symington family, who have been running the company throughout the 20th century and into the 21st century. They have built and developed the company during the 20th and 21st centuries on the heritage of the former Silva and Dow families. Generations of Symington's oenologists have worked in the Dow vineyards, including Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira, from which the magnificent wines are made. The attractive and distinctive dry finish of Dows is the signature of the wines of this great house in Port.
The Midnight Port is made from a selection of very fine wines from the vineyards of Alto Duero de Dow, Quinta does Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira and other surrounding vineyards. It is a dark port wine with a body that has been softened in oak barrels until it is mature. It presents notes of piquant spices that persist on the palate and form an irresistible combination with fine chocolate, nuts, cheese and desserts.
The presentation of this Midnight is completely new, challenging and elegant. It doesn't look like the traditional, old-fashioned design of Port, but is radical, elegant and aerodynamic enough to accompany your casual moments. It proves to be an exceptionally versatile aperitif to end the night.
The Dow's Midnight has been gaining recognition and acceptance in the Portuguese wine sector, and this was demonstrated by the bronze medal it won in the Decanter World Wine Awards and the high qualification received from the expert Jancis Robinson (16.5 points).
