Vintage Port is a year port from an only, extremely good wine year, with a very fine bouquet and of deeply deep red colour. Vintage ports are drawn on bottles after two to three years barrel maturity. They further mature here. Since the Vintage ages in bottles, it must be carefully decanted before enjoying.
