Port Vintage Report: A classic, one of the best Vintages of the century, deep purple, with a great concentration and balance of aromas. It was also one of the largest harvests ever. The rain which fell at the end of September was beneficial. A late harvest, at the start of October, in very hot weather. Very mature grapes some burnt ones. All the exporters declared production, producing quantities greater than the usual. Exported in 1929, this wine coincided with the Great Depression, and the traders in London had difficulty in selling it. Part of it was used, in London, to create blends of common Port wines.
