Ripe wild fruit, delicate notes of spice

Opaque in colour, the nose shows excellent concentration and aroma expression, with ripe wild fruit, delicate notes of spice and hints of cacao. Powerful beginning on the palate, evolving into a wine with a solid structure, made of massive tannins of great quality and freshness. This is a unique wine that enhances the power of Quinta do Crasto's terroir and finishes in a very engaging way, with an almost endless persistence.

Contains Sulphites.

Quinta do Crasto, 2017 Vintage Port with wooden box

The 2017 harvest will go down in the as the earliest ever at Quinta do Crasto. An unusually warm anddry winter meant that the vines’ growth cycle began earlier than normal. Low rainfall continuedthroughout the cycle leading to moderate water stress and the vines had to naturally adapt to theseadverse weather conditions.Harvest began on 8 August, with the grapes that would go into the white wines. This was an important decision since it allowed us the desired levels of freshness and natural acidity. On 18 August, westarted picking the red grapes at the Quinta da Cabreira vineyard in the Douro Superior subregion.We are able to irrigate the grapes on this property and this was instrumental in keeping the vinesworking in a well-balanced fashion and enabled the berries to achieve perfect ripeness.In late August, evening temperatures fell significantly, which helped finish o the ripening of thegrapes. A period of warm days combined with cool nights yielded the perfect balance, so that theharvest of the first Quinta do Crasto red grapes could begin. Dry days in September ensured asmooth harvest.The harvest wrapped up much earlier than normal, namely on 19 September. On balance, we can saythat 2017 was a year of lower yields, with fewer bunches of smaller grapes, but that had excellentconcentration and an optimal skin to pulp ratio. This was a challenging year for the viticulture andwinemaking teams. We had to perfectly time the harvest to ensure maximum quality. 2017 willcertainly go down in history as a year of exceptional wines.
