Description

The 2016 Burmester Vintage Port Wine is loaded with character and enormous ageing potential. From a fully declared year, this port is elegant and fragrant, with a touch of balsamic, a firm structure, aromas of ripe fruit and excellent acidity with a very long finish.

"High-toned style to this with plenty of fruit and chewy tannins. Full-bodied, medium sweet and chewy on the finish. Needs three or four years to soften. Try in 2023.”

Tasting notes by the winemaker Carlos Alves
Ruby colour. Exuberant aromas of red fruit, black currants, rock-rose and light peppermint notes. Extremely elegant and delicate, keeping with the profile of the house, it has firm structure, excellent flavours of ripe fruit and excellent acidity. A long and harmonious finish.

Grape Varieties:
Touriga Nacional (50%) and Touriga Franca (50%), from vines more than 25 years old from Quinta do Arnozelo, Douro Superior.

Reviews

***88 Points Mark Squire - Wine Advocate Jul 2018***

The 2016 Vintage Port comes in at 91 grams of residual sugar. The winery suggested that this was pretty similar to the 2015 style, with this perhaps a bit more concentrated. Showing modest power—but it does have a bit of grip on the finish—it adds delicious and lifted fruit. This is another Porto that is a fairly easy drinker from Sogevinus, with the lovely fruit overcoming some limitations in structure and concentration. That said, it is good to have a little structure and concentration in Vintage Port. This won't be the best ager, and it will be approachable young. It's pricey for what it is, but you won't regret drinking it if someone gives you a glass.
