    Vintage Port from the Outstanding 2017

    by Hugh French | Nov 14, 2019

     

    Vintage Port from the Outstanding 2017 Vintage

     

     

    2017 saw the Douro Valley produce another spectacular vintage following the highly acclaimed 2016. A grand feat indeed considering there haven't been back-to-back vintage port general declarations since the 1872/1873 vintages.Inevitably to be compared with the elegant and vibrant 2016s, the vintage ports of 2017 show power, structure and intensity.

    Today we offer the 2017 vintage ports from Fonseca (96-98 points), Taylor's (98-100 points)and Quinta do Noval (97 Points) including the desperately sought after Nacional (100 Points). The 2017 Quinta do Noval Nacional, in particular, is in very short supply so be sure to act quickly before it's gone.

    All wines below are available now at our special offer prices for the next 7 days only. To place your order simply click on the links below or return the attached form, by email, by fax on 03 9419 6970 or callus on 03 9419 6990. 

     

     

    2017 Fonseca Vintage Port
    375ml Usually $105 - Special Offer $99

    750ml Usually $199 - Special Offer $189
    Sappy and sensational in flavor and fruit, this seemingly has moderate tannins around the edges on first taste, velvety texture and a long finish. Despite the first impression of moderation, there is plenty of power here. As it got some aeration, it showed nothing but power and closed down fairly hard. The combination of great fruit and fine structure makes this a potentially great Fonseca, but right now it is obviously immature and not showing everything it has. I'd recommend some patience here.
    Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate - 96-98 Points

     

    2017 Taylor's Vintage Port
    375ml Usually $105 - Special Offer $99

    750ml Usually $199 - Special Offer $189
    A step up (or two) on the 2016, this shows fine depth, more focus, vivid fruit and serious power. It's not particularly thick, austere or astringent, but this is built for the long haul. It is potentially a great Taylor's, effortlessly combining brilliant fruit and structure. It tastes great now (today, it is far more vivid than its Vinha Velha sibling), but the power makes this hard to drink today. So, have some patience.
    Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate - 98-100 Points

     

    2017 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port
    750ml Usually $229 - Special Offer $205

    Aromatic, wonderfully fragrant and laced with eucalyptus, this then shows typical Noval focus and power. A couple of hours in a glass simply increased the power. More intense than the very fine 2016, it grips the palate and shows rather significant astringency. As wonderfully aromatic as this is, there the 2016 might have the edge. Too closed and muscular once past the aromatics, this rather dry Port needs some time. It is harder to read than the 2016 was, but this should overtake it in time. Have some patience with this one.
    Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate - 97 Points

     

    2017 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port 'Nacional'
    750ml $1,999(Very Limited)

    Rich and vibrant, this has plenty of stuffing and flavor, more than the regular Noval. Then, it adds layer after layer of power. A couple of hours of air makes both the flavors and tannins more intense. It is simply gripping—yet also remarkably fresh. It's a great Noval, and one of the shortlist candidates for "Wine of the Vintage."
    Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate - 100 Points
