2016 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: 2015-vintage-port 2016 is a fantastic year for port with all major shippers declaring the vintage of superior quality.
Jancis Robinson comments "A cold and wet spring made for a tough start to the year, and yields were lower than average as a result. Some very hot spells followed, retarding the ripening process as the vines shut down. Thankfully, the autumn was mostly dry, some picking was delayed until late September and finished in the first week of October. This allowed for a long harvest to ensure optimum ripeness. The wines are rich, complex and intense."
Generally speaking, the 2016 Vintage Ports are brimming with colour and are full of structure, with a profile that is more concentrated, robust and intense when compared to its 2015 counterpart. 2016 is classic style for a Vintage!

The Symington family were the first to declare ahead of St. George's day (when most shippers traditionally announce their declarations) followed by Quinta Do noval, The Fladgate Partnership, Sandeman and the Sogevinus Group. The list is endless revealing the exceptional quality of the 2016 ports.

Cockburn Port, 2016

Vintage Port - Single Bottle (75cl)
Delivery Early 2019

*** 99 Points - James Suckling ***

"This shows fantastic graphite and dark-berry character with black-stone undertones and hints of dried roses. Full-bodied and very tight and precise. Good kick in the end. Love the polished tannins, which are totally folded into the wine. Reminds me of the 1947 Cockburn. Try in 2024. (James Suckling)


The 2016 is the third Cockburn’s Vintage Port declaration under Symington ownership. Since acquiring the historic name in 2010, the family has worked hard to recover the reputation that made Cockburn’s the leading Vintage Port in the 19th century and during the first half of the 20th.

Adrian Bridge, Managing Director
"This is a classic Croft Vintage Port, wonderfully aromatic with a rich fruitiness and an exotic herbal character. However, it has the poise and sense of proportion characteristic of the 2106 vintage. A relatively small crop means that the amount of Vintage Port made was smaller than usual.”

Vintage Port - SINGLE BOTTLE
DUTY PAID, INCL VAT AND DELIVERY TO UK address < br />

SINGLE BOTTLE 1 x 75cl


2016 Vintage is the third ‘Stone Terraces’ Vintage Port produced by Graham’s. The previous bottlings in 2011 and 2015 have received very positive acclaim. Yields on these vineyards are rarely above 1.5Kg/vine. There can be few wines in the world made with such concentration whilst also displaying such finesse, with no over-ripeness and a remarkably fresh acidity on the finish.
This wine hails from the magnificent 18th century stone terraces to the north and east of the estate house at Quinta dos Malvedos.

Offley are delighted to announce a full declaration for our 2016 vintage port.It has been five years since the last release, but according to winemaker Luis Sottomayor, “As soon as the grapes arrived at our winery, we knew this was the best we had seen since the last declaration in 2011”.

Vintage Report
2016 will go down in Port Wine’s history as a top-quality vintage. An unusual year in terms of weather, a mild and dry winter gave way to a persistently wet spring putting the potential for a high-quality harvest in doubt. A mild summer with the occasional heatwave rescued the year with a perfect balance of daytime heat and night-time cold allowing the grapes to mature slowly.
