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.

Ripe black fruits shine through the rich tannins of this perfumed wine. It has a fine juicy character, balanced with the generous tannins and acidity. This is a full-bore wine, likely to be ready to drink from 2028. Roger Voss

Cask sample. First bottle very slightly corked, I think, but the second one more than makes up for it. Deeply coloured like elderberry juice. More subtle than some 2016s and with a delicate floral character entwined with ripe, black hedgerow fruit. This has quite a different structure compared with the Barros, Kopke and Calem 2016s tasted alongside. The tannins are very fine and dry, the aroma of subtle black fruit and 70% dark chocolate. This has real finesse and a lovely bitter-sweet flavour on the long finish. Excellent harmony already but full of promise. I love the long dry finish. (JH)
