Following the Saint George’s day declaration of the 2016 Vintage Port we are now in position to make our first offer, from the Taylor Fladgate Partnership.
The previous official declaration was back in 2013 when the 2011’s were very favourably received by the market. We suspect following our tastings yesterday that 2016 will follow suit. With low yields the volumes are small compared to both 2007 and 2011, and the quality is very fine.
In general the wines show great elegance and balancing structure. These wines will be approachable in infancy with much of the considerable tannin covered with silky fruit, but this is a vintage which will age extremely well too.
