SMITH WOODHOUSE LBV PORTO 2009

  • 2009 was the third dry year in succession (40% less rain than normal)
  • Inevitably, yields were down by one third across their vineyards where the vines produced an average of just 700g of grapes each. This led to the smallest vintage in the Douro since 2000.
  • The upside of the dry conditions was the virtual absence of vine disease, and the berries reached the winery in excellent condition.
  • Gorgeous, captivating aromas of black fruits, cassis and liquorice, interlaced with delicate notes of mint and succulent, black olives. On the palate, the wine is pure seduction with its concentrated essence of intense, bright, blackberry and black cherry flavors with some kirsch, liquorice and black chocolate also present in the background. The formidable, compact structure is lithe and taut, the fine-grained peppery tannins complemented by incredible freshness that give the wine remarkable balance and poise
