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