2017 is a deeply impressive year producing classic Vintage Ports, built to last. These wines have depth, structure and power combined with purity, freshness and finesse. They are multi-layered and hugely complex, with excellent potential to age well for many decades ahead. It was a dry growing season, with consistently low rainfall and high temperatures, but without any damaging heat-spikes. August nights were cool, which may help explain the vibrant freshness we found in the wines.
As last year, allocations are tight and demand is likely to be strong, so please do not delay confirming your requirements. For certain wines, we have small quantities of magnums and tappit hens (225cl bottles) available – please enquire.
Prices are per case in bond UK. For delivery from autumn 2019.
