Vintage Report

Port Vintage Report: Excellent vintage, of notable colour and taste, according to some oenophiles better than that of 1896, but few companies declared production, having produced Vintage the previous year. The first harvests were carried out in very hot weather, producing very quick fermentation at some wine-presses. Then the weather freshened and the quality of the must improved. According to Warner Allen, the best 1896 wines had some 97 added on. There was a dearth of brandy to benefit the wines. Alcohol and brandy was imported from Iceland, Denmark and Germany. Sandeman strengthened its Vintage 97, considered to be legendary, with Scotch Whisky.
