The recent ‘declaration’ of the 2007 vintage port is no exception.
Producers, critics and wine merchants have been unanimous in hailing 2007 as a remarkable year for Vintage Port. In contrast to other recent vintages in the Douro Valley, the grapes ripened in sunny but relatively cool conditions. The result was even and balanced ripening with perfectly healthy leaf canopies able to benefit from the warm weather which preceded the harvest and brought the crop to perfect maturity. These unique conditions expressed themselves in wonderfully elegant wines, with superb vibrant fruit quality as well as the crisp acidity and firm tannins required for a long life in bottle.
