Vintage Port 2016 Ferreira
€ 78,05 (in Vat)
The 2016 Vintage Port is a roughly equal blend of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional, coming in with 115 grams of residual sugar. This has the power to equal its siblings (Sandeman and Offley) and perhaps the freshness to equal the Sandeman, but one thing that makes this better is the longer finish. Plus, it has the concentration to match the power. The intensity is terrific, and the bright demeanor is a little overwhelmed just now by the power and focus. Overall, it's a fine group of Ports from Sogrape this issue. I'd pick this of the three, as it seems to have the most upside potential. It should continue to improve in the cellar. Give it some time, notably more than indicated, if you want real harmony and complexity.
