CROFT AND FONSECA, CLASSIC VINTAGE PORTS
DOURO, PORTUGAL 2016
News of the epic 2016 Port Vintage has reverberated throughout the wine world with a resounding message – Port is King, and it’s better than ever. A legend in the making, the 2016 vintage exemplifies intensity, depth and concentration, yet remains extraordinarily precise and poised. With a powerful backbone and polished tannins, the 2016s are right on the cusp between sheer power and refined elegance - making these exceptional wines that can be consumed young as well as gracefully age for decades to come. With continued innovation in the cellars and better vineyard practices, these Ports are not the rugged and raw wines in their youth that they used to be. As the Port houses continue to evolve, they are showing the world that they are at the top of their game. With 2016 yielding low quantities of deliciously concentrated fruit and a long, even growing season enabling the grapes to develop incredible complexity, the lucky people who get in early on acquiring these wines will be enjoying them over the next 40 to 50 years.
With such buzz surrounding this legendary vintage, we were thrilled that so many people jumped on the Taylor Fladgate 2016 Classic Vintage Port offer earlier this week. Yet with such a high demand and low supply, it’s inevitable that prices will continue to rise and wines will continue to sell out at a rapid pace. So for those who were not able to purchase the Taylor Fladgate 2016 Classic Vintage Port – we decided to go back to our suppliers and see what could be done. Luckily, we did not come back empty handed. As part of the renowned Fladgate Partnership, we were able to secure an allocation of both Fonseca and Croft’s magnificent 2016 Classic Vintage Ports for our Concierge Customers. Scoring 98 and 97 points respectively, these are absolute show-stoppers that display the best of the best from this phenomenal vintage. As a perfect memento to commemorate a legendary year, this is the perfect opportunity to buy these wines before they sell out (or prices spike!). For some of the best prices in the country, we are offering Fonseca 2016 Classic Vintage Port and Croft 2016 Classic Vintage Port as 375ml and 750ml for one week, or until sold out.
