FABULAR HARVEST 2017

Impressive power and concentration

A harvest declared unanimous to vintage is not that common in the Port world, it is almost unique that two consecutive years of harvest 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 significantly in character. Where 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. It was not until July that there was some precipitation and temperatures dropped slightly. The harvest fell about three weeks earlier than usual. 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, which you will enjoy for years to come. In short, whether you are looking for a birth or anniversary wine, or if you are or just know a huge Port lover: don't miss this fantastic wine!

 

Note: the wines are still maturing in the barrel. Delivery will take place in mid-October.
