SMITH WOODHOUSE

IN STOCK

2000

Origin Portugal, Port
ABV 20%

Dark blackish purple. Rich, soft, black cherries. Very sweet and powerful and alcoholic, so much so that it is quite difficult to even discern the tannins but they are there… It is extremely young but is does have all the ingredients there.
18/100

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price discount' for each bottle. Free mainland delivery for all orders over £100.

Now we are talking. Wow. Aromas of liquorice, flowers and crushed blackberries. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with lovely smooth, fine tannins and a long, sweet finish. Greatest young Vintage Port of Smith Woodhouse I have ever tasted.
95/100

Although the nose is quite light it is very black fruit influenced. Blackcurrant, blackberry and richer sloe are there on the palate with black plum adding to the mid fleshiness. There is cherry towards the back giving the finish an appealing brightness. 2016-40

In 1784, Christopher Smith, a wine merchant and Lord Mayor of London, founded a small company shipping Port from offices based in Oporto. In 1835 after Smith's death, the Woodhouse brothers joined the firm and Smith Woodhouse was created. Since 1970, the company has been owned and run by the Symington Family. The main vineyard for Smith Woodhouse is Quinta Madalena based in the Rio Torto which is in the heart of the Douro region and widely renowned for its high quality ports.
