Porto Maynards 2016
A beautifully balanced, rich wine, this has great tannins, a dense, firm texture and luscious blackberry fruits. It shows the structure of the vintage while also bringing a fresher element. Jammy but never cloying, this is an impressive wine for the long term. Drink from 2029.
Société Price: $77.60
Aromas of cacao, fine brandy, dark plum. Rich and well balanced, with great tannins, dense and firm texture and delicious blackberry fruits.
Harvest begins towards the middle of September each year as pickers work the terraces to harvest the fully ripened grapes. The wine matures in casks or in larger wooden vats. The cool ambient temperature of the cellars and its location near the coast is ideal for the lengthy maturation of Port.
