2007 Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port 2007

2007 Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port 2007

Ref: 28717

From the very good 2007 vintage and scoring 91/100 Parker points, "The purple/black-colored 2007 Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port exhibits an alluring bouquet of mineral, pencil lead, espresso, violets, black currant, and fruitcake. Dense and structured on the palate, it has an excellent integration of alcohol, acidity, and tannin. It should be one of the longer lived wines of the vintage with 12-15+ years of aging potential and a drinking window extending through 2037." Drink now - 2037.

This vintage port is shipped in a deluxe silk lined wooden presentation box with four wine accessories (corkscrew, wine pourer, drip stopper & wine thermometer) [worth £17.99] at no extra cost and now includes a free gift card with your personal message and tasting and storage notes.

An outstanding Vintage Port year with 50 houses declaring. Adrian Bridge, CEO of The Fladgate Partnership (producers of Taylors Vintage Port, Fonseca Vintage Port and Croft Vintage Port commented "These are great wines and it is always difficult to compare them to previous years as we believe that each year has its own character, for us, the wines have the noses of the '92s and are probably in the style of the '66." Paul Symington of the Symington Port Group, which owns such illustrious names as W&J Graham Vintage Port, Dow Vintage Port and Warre Vintage Port, added, "The 2007s have some of '94's voluptuous fruit, but there is a more fine acidity and less sweetness than the '94s. I particularly like their racy tannins."

Croft is one of the oldest vintage port houses and was founded as Phayre & Bradley in 1678. The first Croft appears in 1736 when John Croft joined the firm. They were owned by International Distillers after the First World War and were purchase by Taylor Fladgate Partnership in the early 21st Century. They own Quinta da Roeda at Pinhoa which has produced single Quinta vintage ports since 1967. The purchase by Taylors has increased investment in the port production facilities and the 2003 vintage shows the port house regaining its place amongst the top tier of port producers.
