Vintage Port, 1997

  Smith Woodhouse

This classic Symington house is a perennial over-achiever. The 1997 is no exception. Big, assertive and fresh, there is plenty of sweet raisiny fruit, layers of complexity and a richness and polish you would expect from a great vintage port.

Contains Sulphites.

Appellation: Douro

The Douro valley is the home of Port production and is one of the oldest demarcated wine regions in the world. The vineyards follow a band of Schist along the valley rising up in steep terraced slopes from the river. Upstream lies Spains Ribera del Duero. Increasingly, unfortified wines are produced here, but it is really for great vintage port that the region is known.
