Cockburn’s Vintage Ports are made both by foot treading in traditional open lagars, and in modern temperature controlled fermenters. Cockburn’s historically has declared vintages less often than other houses, selecting only those years that fit their more elegant style.
Wine Makers Notes 1997 was an excellent year in the Douro Valley. The harvest was one of the longest in living memory: at the far eastern extremities of the Upper Douro, picking began before the end of August and continued until the second week of October.
Press Quotes "Wine of the Week - A classic. Enjoy now or put away for another decade. This is what vintage port is all about." Rating: ***** Perfection. Tim Fish & Norm Roby WineToday.com, January 2000
"Lean with some good berry, herbal and cherry character. Medium-bodied, medium tannins and a light, sweet finish." Best after 2004. Issue date: 29 February 2000.
