Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port 1994


SKU 17257


Classic Vintage Ports are only declared in exceptional years when conditions have been perfect and wines of outstanding quality are produced. Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port is made exclusively from one harvest at our vineyards in the Rio Torto, one of the finest vineyard areas in the Douro Valley. Following 2 years in oak, we transfer the wine unfiltered to bottle, where it can mature for decades. It is during this long bottle ageing that the young wine is transformed into a magnificent Vintage Port. Shared with family or friends at special occasions, celebrations and parties, Vintage Port makes the moment memorable.

Wine AdvocateAn under-rated producer, Smith-Woodhouse has turned out a port with an impressively saturated dark ruby/purple color. This powerful port is moderately sweet, forward, rich, and full-bodied, with nicely integrated alcohol and tannin. While it is not one of the vintage's blockbusters, it should be ready to drink in 3-5 years and keep for 15-20. Anticipated maturity: 1999-2018.

Wine SpectatorEmits wonderful aromas of crushed fruits, especially berries. Medium-bodied and very sweet with fine tannins and sweet fruit flavors on the finish. An elegant, young vintage Port for relatively early consumption. Best after 2000. 9,000 cases made.
