2017 Vintage Port Collection 6 x 750ml
Officially the ultimate gift for the Port drinker. 2017 marked the first time in the Symington family’s Port-making history – which goes back to their arrival in Porto in 1882 – that they’ve declared consecutive vintages. To celebrate this “spectacular year”, they’ve created a stunning gift box, which contains six bottles of 2017 Vintage Port; one from each of their four classic houses, Graham’s, Dow’s, Cockburn’s and Warre’s, plus a rare bottle of The Stone Terraces from the flagship Quinta dos Malvedos vineyard at Graham’s, and one from Quinta do Vesuvio – the historic estate the family bought 30 years ago. The latter pair have both received scores of 97-99 points from Wine Advocate (see all scores on the Contents tab). Only 500 of these individually numbered wooden cases were made for the global market, and just a handful of these have been allocated to the UK. Demand for these cases will be immense, so don’t expect them to hang around for long.
The yields in 2017 were very low, but the quality of the wine was immensely high. According to Wine Advocate they offer “old-school power, concentration, freshness, lifted fruit and vivid flavours. The only vintage in the last decade that competes with it is 2011.” This is high praise, considering that 2011 is the highest rated year ever for Vintage Port according to Wine Advocate. It’s that freshness that makes this such a great vintage and explains why so much of it was snapped up immediately during a hard-fought En Primeur campaign.
The Symington family compare the 2017 vintage to 1945, widely considered to be one of the greatest vintages the region has ever seen. And they should know what they are talking about because, not only are they the world’s leading producer of premium Port, but they are also the biggest vineyard owner in the Douro Valley – a UNESCO World Heritage Site of jaw-dropping beauty.
