The Great 2017 Vintage Ports

The 2017 Port Vintage was generally declared and together with 2016 made history being the first back-to-back declaration since the late 19th century. When 2017 were tasted last year, we thought it the equal of the great 2016’s and the great 1994’s. For sure, the debate about which is better will rage on for a very long time.

The question now becomes whether it will be an unprecedented three-peat declaration with the 2018’s – alas we’ll have to wait till Saint George’s Day on April 23rd to find out. For now, we are spinning in delirium with the embarassment of riches from these two great vintages. For those of you where 2016 and 2017 are significant years, please purchase now for your cellars and you will have greatness to taste down the road.
Note that yields were lower in 2017 than 2016’s so availability is more limited (get yours early). We have four 2017 ports (in 750mL formats) on offer (pictured left to right):

2017 Niepoort Vintage Port (Douro, Portugal) – $169.99

2017 Dow’s Vintage Port (Douro, Portugal) – $149.99

2017 Fonseca Vintage Port (Douro, Portugal) – $169.99

2017 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port (Douro, Portugal) – $169.99

We are hoping more will show up on our shores over the next quarter. Stay tuned.
