Douro Vintage Guide

2017 proved to be a hot, dry year with one of the earliest harvests on record and yields down about 35% but the quality looks to be very good for table wine. 2016 was a complex but ultimately satisfying year with a wet winter followed by a summer that was drier and warmer than usual; the resulting wines show great balance and concentration in both red and white. 2015 was excellent and reds and whites have depth and concentration. Cooler conditions in 2014 produced some of the best whites yet. After a slow start, 2013 gave high quality wines in the end, drinking well now. 2012 was a low-yielding vintage which produced concentrated reds with good acidity that should keep. 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 making 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.
