Vintage Port 2000 – 2010. Port Wine Day 2014

I was invited to the Douro to participate in Port Wine Day, a celebration of the 10th September 1756 when Douro was the world’s first regulated and demarked wineregion. The celebration took place with a tasting of Vintage Port from the first decade of this century. Each producer brought 2 different years, showing the different styles they made. It was really interesting to taste all these beautiful wines side-by-side and learning the different years better to know. I can conclude that 2007 is still a fantastic year for me, the relative high acidity gives most wines a nice freshness that I like.
