Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port 2016 (5405)

Portugal - Oporto
Port Blend

 

The Smith Woodhouse 2016 Vintage Port is entirely based on the Madalena vineyard. primarily from the field blend of very old mixed vines. They cover just  over half of the vineyard's 17 hectares, and in 2016, the yields of these Vinhas Velhas were exceptionally low, a meagre 200 grams per vine, practically one bunch from each vine. The remarkable depth and complexity of the wine reflect the concentration and structure provided by these  grapes. The remainder of Madalena is planted with Touriga Franca, a late ripening variety, well  suited to the conditions of the Rio Torto area where typically the crop takes longer to ripen. This  component from Madalena, the Vinha das Flores - true to its name - provides distinctive floral  aromas of violets and rockrose.

Aromas suggesting bergamot and tea-leaf, as well as floral aromas of rockrose and violets. Substantial on the palate, showing ripe, black fruit and liquorice. The seamless, peppery tannins give freshness and excellent structure.

James Suckling Tasting Report

This is extremely floral with dark fruit and plum character. Full-bodied, very tight and focused. It's a complete young vintage Port that is great from start to finish. Rio Torto fruit makes this great! Better in 2022.

Opulent rich style, balanced by firm hard tannins. Ageing gives these wines an unmatched elegance.
