Port 2017: Vintage guide and what to buy

Port 2017 Vintage report and recommendations
Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos is the source of its The Stone Terraces Port: ‘the quintessence of the finest Douro fruit’ according to Richard Mayson in his report.

Port 2017

A magnificent vintage, hard on the heels of 2016. Rich, intense, powerful fruit-driven wines balanced by unusual freshness and verve.

5/5

When I broached the selection of early-released 2017 Port, I fully expected to see all the hallmarks of a hot vintage. This was, after all, the earliest harvest in living memory, with picking taking place at the end of August.
