Quinta Do Pego vintage 2017
Never before in the history of Quinta do Pégo has one chosen to declare vintage port three vintages in a row. But even though the quantities in the 2017 vintage are small, the quality is so towering that the vintage may turn out to go down in history. And therefore, the year 2017 is simply THE YEAR for vintage port. The wine is produced by Rozès ’winemaker Manuel Henrique under the supervision of Wouter Pienaar. The grapes for the port wine come from the best plots on Quinta do Pégo and come from vines that are 30 to over 100 years old. Quinta do Pégos Vintage Port 2017 is a powerful, rewarding and charming vintage port with a long life ahead of it. The wine appears dark red in the glass with high-intensity aromas of plums, raisins, blackberries, chocolate, violet and an underlying minerality. The taste is full-bodied, elegant and well-balanced with good acidity, powerful, but at the same time silky soft tannins and an incredibly long and very pleasant aftertaste. A balanced and long-lasting vintage port that should be served chilled, and which is particularly suitable as an "after-meal drink" or for strong cheeses, chocolates and desserts.
