Thu 18 May 2017 - UK Launch of the SFE 2015 vintage ports

Post by AHB » 07:42 Fri 19 May 2017

Yesterday evening Paul and Charles Symington and Joao Vasconcellos presented the Symington Family Estates 2015 vintage ports which are being offered for sale this year. Alongside each of the 2015s was an older port from the same stable. The flights were as follows:
1) Dow Senhora da Ribeira 2015 and 1998.

2) Quinta do Vesuvio 2015 and 1995.

3) Cockburn 2015 and 2011.

4) Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Graham 1970.

I'll post my thoughts on the wines shortly.

Charles also mentioned that he had made Cavadinha, Malvedos and Bomfim 2015 ports but that if these were to be released, they would be late released wines. I forgot to ask about Madalena!

Apparently Jeff made an impression on Charles in New York last week - you got a shout out Jeff!
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
