Reviews:
The 2017 Vintage Port is a field blend, which is mostly represented as Touriga Franca (30%), Touriga Nacional (20%) and Tinta Roriz (15%), with dollops of others for the rest. This was the final blend, but it was about two weeks from bottling when seen. Another of those unoaked Ports cropping up, it comes in rather dry at 80 grams per liter of residual sugar. Enticingly aromatic, this has good concentration and a long finish, with fairly significant tannins up front. With aeration, this became even more aromatic. It thinned a bit, but the flavors became far more vivid, and the wine seemed far fresher at that point. The lifted fruit was simply delicious. The tannins moderated a bit, but it was still very vigorous. Overall, this is lovely, elegant, balanced and very tasty. You can approach it somewhat young, but it has the structure to age reasonably well. Mark Squires E Robert parker

Our review: Tasted at the Big Fortified Tasting, April 2019. The 2017 Quevedo has a great deep inky-purple colour that marks the appearance of a Vintage Port. The aroma is dominated by a youthful dark fruit with hints of fragrant violets. On the palate It is a very powerful wine, yet fresh with seductive dark fruits. The finish is long and bold. This wine has a great balance of power and elegance and is approachable even at this early stage in its evolution. This 2017 has structure that promises long term ageing (40 years plus).
