Product Details

Douro Vintages

The growers report that 2016 was a complex but ultimately satisfying year with a wet winter followed by a drier and warmer summer than usual; the resulting wines showing great balance and concentration in both red and white. 2015 promises great things for both red and white. 2014 and cooler conditions produced some of the best whites yet. After a slow start, 2013 gave high quality wines in the end. 2012 was a low-yielding vintage which produced small, concentrated berries with good acidity. A drought year in 2011 gave great quality wines, whilst 2010 produced plenty of wine, some of which lacked a little definition. Another hot year in 2009 meant good ripeness but alcohols could be high, in contrast to 2008 and 2007 which were much cooler and the patient growers harvested in ideal conditions giving very good wines. 2006 was an unusual year in the Douro, being wet at harvest. The preceding 2005 vintage was, however, very dry and produced some excellent, well-balanced wines, and this in turn followed the hot summer of 2004, when rain in early September provided a much needed boost in the vineyards. The drought year of 2003 turned up some very good wines, which have aged well.
