Verkoop Vintage port 2016; zuiverheid, verfijning en structuur

Fonseca – Quinta do Cruzeiro

Volgens de traditie op Saint Georges Day, 23 april 2018,
verklaren porthuizen Croft en Taylor’s het oogstjaar 2016 tot een ‘Classic Vintage Port’.

Het jaar 2016 kenmerkt zich door twee uitzonderlijke factoren. De lente was extreem nat met hevige neerslag. Het voordeel hiervan was dat het waterreservoir in de bodem werd
aangevuld na de extreme droogte in het najaar van 2015. Van begin juli tot eind september waren de weersomstandigheden extreem heet en droog. Hierdoor konden de druiven
uiteindelijk volledig doorrijpen en begon de pluk rond 17 september 2016.

Commenting on the viticultural year: “The harvest of 2016 will be remembered as having started very late. Fonseca’s Quinta do Cruzeiro started picking right at the end of September and Quinta do Santo António at the beginning of October. This was due to the late start to
the ripening season and to the long and very even maturation of the crop. Balance is certainly one of the keynotes of the vintage”. Commenting on the wine: “The gradual and even ripening of the crop has produced beautifully balanced Fonseca 2016 Vintage Port, with
pure fruit, firm but well integrated tannins and an attractive freshness.”

Dows Vintage Port 2016 – tasting notes

Aromas of blueberries, blackberries and dried flowers plus hints of slate follow through to a full body, very fine tannins and a driven and linear finish. Orange peel and dried fruit. Sleek and racy. Ready to try in 2024. 
James Suckling – 96/100

Extremely dark blackish crimson (like Graham 2016!). Rather savoury and minerally on the nose. Such a strong, almost minty personality. Lovely blend of freshness and ripeness, though some may reproach it for slightly less tannins than others. Lovely briny impact. Relatively forward, possibly tempting to drink it quite young?

Kopke Vintage Port 2016 – tasting notes

Candied fruit with ginger and black treacle. Smooth, manicured tannins – buffed and polished to a fine sheen. Medium body, very well-integrated spirit and sugar – the only thing it lacks is a bit more persistence and complexity on the finish, but that may well emerge with age?
