Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"Over the last twenty five years the work done in the Dow’s vineyards and in the Dow’s wineries has resulted in constant improvement to the quality of all the house's premium Ports. Nowhere has this investment been more in evidence than in the quality of Dow’s Late Bottled Vintage Ports (LBV). Dow’s LBV is full-bodied, rich but perfectly balanced with soft peppery tannins and with a fine acidity that ensure perfect balance on the palate. The classic Dow’s dry finish is always present in the house’s LBV; it is one of the finest LBV Ports available."


Roger Voss, 91/100 Wine Enthusiast (2013 Vintage)
"This wine comes from the original member of the Symington family of companies. The style of the Port, as always with Dow's, is on the dry side, giving structure as well as pure dried fruits and tannins. That suggests this LBV could age. Drink now, but it will better from 2022."


Reviews for the 2011 vintage below…


94/100 & Best Buy, Joshua Greene, Wine and Spirits Magazine (2011 Vintage)
"This offers more immediate pleasures than the vintage Dow's declared in 2011—it comes across as an idealized LBV rather than a baby Vintage. Formidable in its black density and red spice, fragrant with persimmon-like scents and tannins that have the grit of stone-ground chocolate, this is compellingly drinkable and delicious. Stock up for the holidays."


92/100 & Best Value Wine, Natalie Maclean (2011 Vintage)
"Terrific value for this Portuguese fortified dessert wine from the Douro Valley. Aromas of blackcurrant jam and blackberry pie wrapped in smoke. Pair with holiday fruitcake, chocolate cheesecake or chocolate chip cookies. Port food pairings: blue cheese, nuts, almond torte, chocolate."


90/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2011 Vintage)
"The 2011 Late Bottled Vintage Port is bottled with a bar top cork and 105 grams per litre of residual sugar. It has reasonable concentration, but bigger aromatics. Sappy and intensely flavourful on the finish, this shows off a bit of muscle, too, but it is fully ready to drink and it shows very well. It's made to drink now. If well stored, it can last, but it's not meant to hold."

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

    5 star review  Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. Highly recommend.
