Port, 1983

1983 is a slow burning Port vintage, once underrated, but has now developed beautifully in bottle - being complex, harmonious and balanced.

Port vintages are declared when a port house (estate) feels that their wine in a particular vintage is of the highest quality. There is not always uniform agreement between houses as to whether a year should be declared a vintage, and on average there are around three declarations each decade.

Market forces can also influence a vintage declaration, i.e. whether the market can absorb another vintage at a particular time.
