Description and Reviews:
The 2016 Burmester Vintage Port Wine is loaded with character and enormous ageing potential. From a fully declared year, this port is elegant and fragrant, with a touch of balsamic, a firm structure, aromas of ripe fruit and excellent acidity with a very long finish.

"High-toned style to this with plenty of fruit and chewy tannins. Full-bodied, medium sweet and chewy on the finish. Needs three or four years to soften. Try in 2023.”

Tasting notes by the winemaker Carlos Alves
Ruby colour. Exuberant aromas of red fruit, black currants, rock-rose and light peppermint notes. Extremely elegant and delicate, keeping with the profile of the house, it has firm structure, excellent flavours of ripe fruit and excellent acidity. A long and harmonious finish.

Grape Varieties:
Touriga Nacional (50%) and Touriga Franca (50%), from vines more than 25 years old from Quinta do Arnozelo, Douro Superior.
