2006 Port Vintage Report

The 2006 Port Vintage was a year that produced good Single Quinta Vintage Ports. Heavy winter rains replenished the drought-exhausted water table following the very good but dry 2005 vintage. Good weather followed, and flowering took place during the hottest May in 40 years. Temperatures steadily increased until a severe hailstorm hit vineyards in the Pinhão valley in the middle of June. Several vineyards lost up to 30% of the crop. A hot July followed, superseded by a cooler August and some much needed rain. More hot weather late August and early September caused some raisining and crop reduction in exposed vineyards. Picking began mid-September just ahead of a rainy spell.
Yields for 2006 were down at least 15% below average.

Palmer Port, 2006

Colheita Port, Douro
50 cl

A 50cl bottle of 2006 vintage Colheita Port Wine from Palmer Port. This is exclusive to Vintage Wine & Port.

This rare 2006 Port Wine has been stored in seasoned oak casks since the 2006 harvest until it was bottled this year. This is an outstanding example of an aged tawny from a single year.

Tasting Notes: The 2006 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.
