Information
FABULOUS HARVEST YEAR 2017

Impressive power and concentration

A harvest declared unanimous to be vintage is not so common in the Port world, it is virtually unique that two consecutive harvest years are officially declared vintage. Harvest 2017 is even the first 'back-to-back declaration' since 1872/73. We mean… Although '16 and '17 have been declared general vintage due to their exceptional quality, the harvests differ considerably in character. While 2016 was primarily a year of elegance and finesse, 2017 is a year of concentration, strength and structure.

That has everything to do with the hot and dry growing season. It already started with an exceptionally dry winter, followed by a hot and dry spring. In June there was even a heat wave in the Douro, with temperatures of over forty degrees. Only in July there was some precipitation and the temperatures dropped slightly. The harvest was about three weeks earlier than normal. Although the yield was somewhat lower than average, the quality of the grapes was exceptionally good. According to winemaker Manuel Lobo, the old sticks could prove themselves perfectly under the extremely hot conditions.

All this makes this Vintage not only an impressive taste sensation, but also an ultimate cellar wine that will keep you drinking for years to come. In short, whether you are looking for a birth or anniversary wine, or just a huge Port lover or know: do not miss this fantastic wine!

 

Note: the wines still mature in the barrel. Delivery will take place mid October.
