Smith Woodhouse 2007

Release Notes


The deep opaque purple colour of this wine is due to the very low production of the old vines used in the blend from Quinta da Madalena and Vale Coelho. The 2007 Vintage is notable for its lovely spicy rock rose aromas.  Full rich, powerful cassis flavours on the palate, combine perfectly with a sweet, rich liquorice and fruit finish. This powerful and complex Vintage Port has a huge potential for ageing.

Alcohol: 20% vol (20ºC)
Total acidity: 4.4 g/l tartaric acid
Baumé: 3.9

Tasting Notes

The purple/black-colored 2007 Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port exhibits an alluring bouquet of mineral, pencil lead, espresso, violets, black currant, and fruitcake.  Dense and structured on the palate, it has an excellent integration of alcohol, acidity, and tannin.  It should be one of the longer lived wines of the vintage with 12-15+ years of aging potential and a drinking window extending through 2037.

Score: 91/100
