A very good Vintage Port year with 38 houses declaring. Adrian Bridge, CEO of The Fladgate Partnership (producers of Taylors Vintage Port, Fonseca Vintage Port and Croft Vintage Port commented "Such colour intensity and tannic structure have not been seen for over twenty years. However, the wines also display crisp acidity and wonderfully pure, vibrant fruit. Although they are built for long term ageing, like the great landmark vintages of the past, the 2009s are capable of delivering hedonistic pleasure even at this early stage in their development." His winemaker David Guimaraens stated "We havent seen colour intensity and tannic grip like this in over 20 years. The quality of the fruit is impressive and the wines have excellent acidity.
