Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port 2007


SKU 6909


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 nominated by 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. Smith Woodhouse 2007 Vintage Port is a fabulous way to end a lunch or dinner. It pairs wonderfully with chocolate desserts, such as chocolate mousse, but it can also be enjoyed on its own, providing a memorable moment in the company of good friends.

Wine EnthusiastAs often happens, this lesser brand from the Symington Family Estates stable has produced an impressive vintage. It is structured, while also attractive, lively and fresh. There is a light layer of sweetness, the fruit bold and black, finishing with a fine, juicy aftertaste.

Wine AdvocateThe 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.

Wine SpectatorGrapey and aromatic, with hints of citrus and blueberry on the nose. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with medium tannins and a clean, fresh finish. A little forward. I expected slightly more from this in this vintage. Best after 2015. 3,000 cases made.
