Port, 1991

1991 was an outstanding Port vintage, rich, muscular and powerful - a vintage for long cellaring.

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.
