Palmer

Tribute Palmer To the everlasting memory of Samuel Palmer a Port Wine trade pioneer

Founded 2014
Owner Fernando and Alvaro van Zeller

Samuel Palmer was one of the first three exporting port wine to England during the 17th century. In 1685 he bought Casa de Melladas, and it was owned by the family for more than 200 years, but during the late 2000th century it was sold to Amorim family. Samual Palmer is a relative to today's van Zeller family. Fernando and Alvaro van Zeller has now started this brand even if they already have houses as Barao de Vilar, Maynard and Feuerheerd.

ColourStill very dark indeed but with a tawny edge.Number of tastings1
BouquetLovely burned bouquet with roasted nuts, roasted coffee beans and burned sugar in the nose.Bottled2018
TasteQuite full-bodied. Mature and peaking. Balanced with a lovely acidity. Very complex with roasted nuts and coffee and some burned sugar in taste. The finish is massive and lingered and seems never to end. A memorable port indeed!Score range
