2016 Vintage Port Launch

Symington Family Estates, the producer behind historic Port brands Cockburn’s, Dow’s, Warre’s and Graham’s announced in April the declaration of all of its houses for the 2016 Vintage. This is only the fourth Vintage declaration for all its Port Houses since 2000 and the first since the magnificent 2011 Vintage. Few wine regions anywhere restrict Vintage years with such meticulous care and only truly exceptional Ports are declared in this way. The 2016s have been incredibly well received as shown by the 99 Points for Graham’s 2016 from James Suckling and 19/20 for Dow’s 2016 from Richard Mayson.
