Description

The excellent vintage and leading producer of Vintage Port is the mighty 1997 Cockburns Vintage Port….just starting to really shine but still many more years for this one to improve but will be on my Cheese Board for Christmas!nnCockburn's is the largest land owner in the Douro Superior. Grapes are still crushed and fermented before transport to the Cockburn's lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia and Santa Maria for aging, blending, bottling and shipping. Cockburn exercises an enormous amount of quality control and traditional open techniques in modern temperature controlled fermenters. Cockburn historically declare vintages less often than other houses, selecting only best years that fit the elegant style. They ferment slightly longer than other port houses, creating a less sweet style that allows the fruit and tannin structure to show. This is known as "grip" in the port trade. However this is still sticky and one of the most powerful of the 1997 vintage, superb with cake and/or cheese!nnAged two years in (old) wood and bottled unfiltered, vintage port usually demands at least 10-15 years of bottle age to soften its powerful tannins and permit the robust fruit elements to marry and harmonize. Vintage port is usually considered fully mature after 30 years, I have this vintage most years and they are superb now but will easily keep for many more years and improve, so drink 1, keep 1 or gift it.nThese have recently been removed from IB storage e.g. perfect condition and providence only 2 bottles available so grab a bargain if you like your port as these are nothing like any supermarket port.n
