2009 Vintage Port Vintage Report

The 2009 Port was declared as a vintage by the Taylor Fladgate Partnership covering Taylor, Fonseca and Croft. It will be remembered as a year of low yields which produced wines of massive density and scale. This was partly the result of a small amount of fruit produced across all grape varieties and also the very dry summer during which there was no rainfall from July through to harvest time in September.

Skeffington Vintage Port, 2009

Skeffington Vintage Port, 2009


Vintage Port
Description:
** 89 points - Neil Martin **

Possibly the bargain of the vintage. Restrained on the nose, intensely perfumed and dominated by Gala melons. Smooth, medium-bodied entry initially with modest levels of fruit. Patience and air allows the fruit to blossom and the tannins to show. The fruit grows to surprising levels - an intriguing and intense mix of raspberries and blackcurrants. Curry powder tingles on the aftertaste before giving way to a long and powerful finish of blackberries.

Reviews
Jancis Robinson:"Very deep purple with a notably `warm` nose reminiscent of raisins. Notably high volatile acidity and masses of smudgy, pruney, sweet fruit.
