The announcement - only the sixth declaration of the 21st century - concludes a period of intense discussion within the wine trade as to whether 2017 would warrant a full declaration, given the quality of the critically acclaimed 2016 Vintage Ports and the rarity of declarations. The first consecutive declaration by our family is a milestone moment in our long history and is the result of two very different but extremely high-quality years for port in the Douro.

The 2017 wines were the result of an advanced growing cycle which led to the earliest harvest ever recorded in our family’s 137-year history as winemakers and port producers. Warmer, drier conditions than usual resulted in small, compact bunches of grapes in excellent condition, with yields amongst the lowest of the century so far, 20% below the 10-year average.

Despite the harvest beginning in August, the maturations were perfectly balanced, resulting in wines characterised by extraordinary intensity, concentration and structure, combined with stunning aromas and freshness.

We have produced 2017 Vintage Ports from across our flagship Douro Quintas, and will shortly be offering limited quantities (by allocation en primeur) of Graham’s, Dow’s, Warre’s and Cockburn’s as well as Quinta do Vesuvio, Graham’s The Stone Terraces and Capela da Quinta do Vesuvio. The 2017 is just the fourth release of the latter two, which are only produced in truly exceptional years. Given the very low-yielding year, the 2017 Vintage Port is the smallest Symington declaration of the 21st century.

Quinta de Vesuvio

We are pleased to announce 2017 as a Vintage Port year, making this our first ever ‘back-to-back’ general declaration in five generations since Andrew James Symington arrived in Porto in 1882.

Given the very low-yielding year, the 2017 Vintage Port is our smallest declaration of the 21st century, with en primeur volumes approximately a third less than in 2016.Graham’s 2017 Vintage Port

Although 2017 was an extraordinarily dry year, the vines at Quinta do Vesuvio adjusted to the drought with impressive resilience, producing small, compact grapes that delivered superb concentration balanced by remarkable freshness. At Vesuvio we preserve the time-honoured method of treading the grapes in the impressive granite lagares built in 1827. Teams of up to 50 men and women tread the grapes every evening and into the night during the vintage, true to a centuries-old tradition. This is one of the last examples of Vintage Port being produced in the historic way in the Douro and results in wines of exceptional complexity and fantastic ageing potential.

Only 1,200 nine litre cases were bottled.
