1997 Vintage Port

1997 Delaforce Quinta da Corte Vintage Port

1997 Delaforce Quinta da Corte Vintage Port, DOC Douro

To pair with our stunning Colheita Port, a Vintage Port of the same, well, vintage. Why not - my holidays drinking is all about excess. I broke this cork, no matter. Deep inky purple, such gorgeously ripe, crush berries on the bouquet. Schist minerality, fragrant - good amount of sweetness, on a fluffy texture. Finely structured, drinking absolutely beautifully now.

When it comes to wine drinking . . . oh yes, more is better. Much better.
