We are delighted to offer the 2017 vintage Ports. This is an excellent year which has produced wines in a totally different style to those of 2016. They have masses of fruit with big structure and with what Johnny Graham described as an exciting vibrancy in contrast to the cool precision of 2016. The product of a hot and dry year, they have great concentration of fruit and a style which many producers describe as ‘old school’. Back-to-back declarations are very rare so it’s a guarantee of the quality that the Port Houses feel that they can declare both vintages. In terms of 2017 it’s even being mentioned as comparable with the legendary 1945s.
