The 2017 Port Vintage is of exceptional quality. So much so that The Symington Family have declared the first back to back vintage declaration in the family’s 137 year history. The vintage was characterised by intense heat with record low levels of rainfall. Flowering and bud burst developed under good conditions and the high daytime temperatures and cool nights in August and September allowed for a gradual and even ripening. Harvest was exceptionally early, with some producers harvesting at the beginning of August. The harvest was around 20 to 30% down on a normal harvest, basically due to water stress. So, 2017 produced a smaller quantity of excellent fruit. Conditions were similar to 1945, an extremely highly regarded vintage. Expect powerful, intense and complex wines with great aromas and freshness. As Dirk Niepoort declared, “the 2017 Vintage Port is epic and a triumph, the best I’ve witnessed in all my years at Niepoort”, whilst Adrian Bridge, managing director of The Fladgate Partnership, stated “All our houses and their properties have produced exceptional wines, with impressive density, depth and aromatic potential”.
