Ramos Pinto declares 2017 vintage

Ramos Pinto has joined the growing number of Port producers by declaring a 2017 vintage.

It is also only the third time that Ramos Pinto has decided to declare both a vintage and single quinta Port.

Jorge Rosas, CEO of Ramos Pinto, has said 2017 is “an exceptional year – the 2017s are without a doubt up there with our best vintages. We always listen to the vines and what they tell us, that has always been the Ramos way, and in 2017 we had fantastic quality in the vineyards.”

As with Symington Family Estates and Quinta do Noval who have also declared the 2017 vintage, Ramos Pinto reported a hot year and an unusually early start to the harvest.

Picking began at the same time at Quinta de Ervamoira and Bom Retiro when harvesting there is normally separated by three weeks.

The conditions led to extremely healthy but also concentrated grapes, with master blender Ana Rosas commenting: “The decision to release a Vintage Port always starts in vineyards with the quality of the fruit not in the winemaking. In 2017, the vineyards gave us fantastic quality both in Quinta de Ervamoira and Bom Retiro.”
