Warre's, Vintage Port, 2017

Tasting Note:

Warre’s is the oldest of all the British Port companies in Portugal, turning out some of the Douro’s greatest Ports for over three hundred years. Warre’s 2017 benefits from a higher proportion of natural field blends (63%) than many of the other houses, making up the balance with 22% Touriga Nacional and 15% Touriga Franca, which helps to build complexity, combined with tiny yields averaging a mere 500g per vine.

Delicious. 13.6% of Warre’s total vineyard production.
