1947 Vintage

An outstanding vintage which was declared by only 11 shippers. Fine, attractive wines.

The wine has been fully mature for many years, but well cellared, the best wines will last for many more. Exquisite vintage ports, elegant and delicate.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

There was a very heavy rainfall in March, which was followed by fine weather at Easter. June was variable but the vines showed great health. It became very hot and until early September there was a drought. The rain which then followed was very helpful.

The harvest started on the 22nd in perfect conditions - sunny and not too hot.

Winemaker's Overview

Vintage started on the 22nd. Quantity as anticipated was small, but the grapes very sound as the weather ideal. The wines took plenty of work, colour was excellent and there seems every reason to suppose that the 1947's will turn out very well.
