2000 Port Vintage Report

The 2000 Vintage was the first to be declared in the 21st century and will be remembered for the immense concentration of its wines and for the small quantities produced. The wines show tremendous promise, with intense berry fruit aromas and full-bodied structure. They should remain at their peak between now and 2040 at the very least, if kept well.

Palmer Port, 2000

Colheita Port, Douro
75cl Bottle

This rare Port Wine has been stored in seasoned oak casks since the 2000 harvest until it was bottled this year. This is an outstanding example of an aged tawny.

Tasting Notes: The 2000 Port from Palmer has a light oak colour. Much elegance on the nose with orange peel, walnuts, figs and a touch of honey. On the palate, there is a lightness that is balanced by good acidity. This port wine delivers a beautiful flavour supported by a long, long finish. Outstanding.


Colheita Port Storage and Serving Advice:
Colheita Port should be stored in a cool and dry place, sheltered from light and temperature fluctuations, and the bottle should remain in an upright position.

J W Hart, 2000

Colheita Port, Douro

This 2000 J W Hart Tawny Colheita is elegant and complex. An amalgamation of rich flavours is marked by the presence of dried fruits, with a burst of freshness in red cherries enhanced by an exuberant note of spice. Perfect for pairing with an exquisite salted caramel tart.


Colheita Port Storage and Serving Advice:
Colheita Port should be stored in a cool and dry place, sheltered from light and temperature fluctuations, and the bottle should remain in an upright position. If stored correctly, Colheita Ports will keep for decades in the bottle. Over time, it is natural that a little sediment will form at the bottom of a bottle of colheita Port wine.

Vintage Port, Douro
Excellent Provenance | Library Release
***18.5/20 Points - JancisRobinson.com***

We are delighted to offer a small parcel of sandeman 2000 Vintage Port released from the Sandeman Cellars.

“This is a deep-coloured wine with faint brick hues, dominated by aromatic notes of mint cedar and tobacco box. It reveals the presence of spices such as pepper and cinnamon, ripe black fruits and slight chocolate hits, the result of an excellent maturation. On the palate it displays excellent structure, good quality tannins and a very well integrated acidity. The long finish of great complexity shows aromatic notes of cedar and mint, as well as ripe black fruits.”

Dow's, 2000

Vintage Port, Douro

**94 Points** Robert Parker
"An opaque blue/purple colour (typical of this vintage's top offerings) is followed by a strikingly provocative aromatic display (flowers, licorice, blackberries, and cassis). This firmly-structured, classic, tightly-knit, restrained port exhibits brilliant purity as well as impressive intensity. While not the most dramatic or flamboyant, it is a beautiful, classically structured port that will age gracefully. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2050." Robert Parker

Niepoort Port, 2000

Secundum Vintage Port, Douro

Dirk Niepoort has created this second style of vintage port called “Secundum Vintage”. The Secundum’s intention is to provide an approachable Vintage that offers immediate satisfaction yet is well-balanced enough to age for decades. So it is not a second wine, but instead an alternative, slightly more affordable bottling for Niepoort fans who can’t afford or obtain the regular Vintage Port. It’s a proper Vintage Port, but from wines considered not classic enough to be a Vintage Niepoort. The 2000 vintage has a slightly sweet herbal edge to the nose. Rich, full flavoured palate shows sweet fruit with a chunky, spicy edge.

Quinta do Noval Nacional, 2000

'Nacional' Vintage Port, Douro
95 Points Vinous

Quinta do Noval Nacional is a Vintage Port produced only in selected years from a small area at the heart of the Quinta do Noval vineyard planted with ungrafted vines and untouched by phylloxera. 2000 was a widely declared vintage and produced wines of immense concentration. Though not as flamboyant as the similarly warm 2003 vintage, this has excellent staying power and should continue to improve over time.
