Cockburn’s 2017 Vintage Port is released for sale.
The first ever consecutive declaration for the Symington family is a milestone moment in their long history and is the result of two very different but extremely high-quality years for port in the Douro. Nothing less than a spectacular year would have justified the first general ‘back-to-back’ Vintage Port declaration by our family since Andrew James Symington arrived in Porto in 1882.
It is also the smallest declaration in the 21st century with yields around one third less than the 2016 vintage.
“Insane aromas of crushed berry, flowers and lifted ester like a fermenting lager. Full body, tannic yet so finely grained in texture. Extremely long and beautiful. It goes on for minutes. 2,500 cases. Try in 2026. 98 points.”
James Suckling, May 2019.
