2016 will go down in Port Wine’s history as a top-quality vintage. An unusual year in terms of weather, a mild and dry winter gave way to a persistently wet spring putting the potential for a high-quality harvest in doubt. A mild summer with the occasional heatwave rescued the year with a perfect balance of daytime heat and night-time cold allowing the grapes to mature slowly. Opaque with an almost black colour the wine has an intense, complex aroma. Ripe black fruit, cocoa and chocolate flavours continue on to the palate where some floral notes of rockrose are also apparent in a long, lingering finish. Firm tannins, full-bodied and with fresh acidity it has structure that will allow the wine to age comfortably for decades. Robert Parker Rating: 93 points. Gold - International Wine Challenge 2019.
