TASTING NOTE

A deep opaque colour with a narrow lighter rim.  The nose is of mellow black fruit and notes of liquorice.  On the palate it is rounded and packed with layers of ripe berry fruit with a hint of fig. It displays rounded tannins and a long finish. It is already drinking beautifully but will age gracefully for a few several years.
 
DECANTING
Vintage Port forms a natural deposit in the bottle and should be decanted. Stand the bottle upright a few hours before decanting to allow the sediment to fall to the bottom of the bottle before decanting slowly into a decanter or jug to separate the wine from the sediment.
 
STORAGE
Continues to improve for decades after bottling. The bottle should be kept lain down in a cool place, ideally at a temperature below 16ºC.
SERVING TEMPERATURE
Serve at 16ºC to 18ºC. Vintage Port is best drunk one to two days after opening.
PAIRING SUGGESTIONS
Walnuts, blue veined and other richly flavoured cheeses are excellent accompaniments to Vintage Port; so too are dried fruits such as apricots or figs.
 
NOTES ON VITICULTURAL YEAR & HARVEST
A wet 1999 vintage was followed by a cold and dry winter. April and May were very wet with half the annual rainfall falling in these two months. June and July were dry.
August continued dry, with the first half being extremely hot. The end of August and early September had perfect ripening conditions with long warm days. A couple of days of rain between the 10th and 18th September produced the ideal conditions and finished off the ripening. The resulting wines were big and full bodied with intense colour and very attractive aromas.
