Vintage Port

A very limited quantitiy was produced with our best grapes of the 2017 harvest. Bottled 2 years after the harvest, the Vintage Port will keep developing inside the bottle and your patience will be rewarded after a few decades.

2017

TASTING NOTES

Colour

Deep red

AROMA

Fresh and intense cherry and red liquorice aromas.

PALATE

Concentrated fruit on the palate, with ripe black cherries and tannins which grip firmly. The tannins are huge on the mid-palate. The acidity shows up on the aftertaste, but then the tannins settle in once again to support the long aniseed finish which ends with a fabulous green bell peppertwist.
