Cockburn's declares '07 vintage

The Cockburn’s port house has declared a 2007 vintage for its main label and for Quinta dos Canais, from which the majority of the wine for Cockburn’s is sourced.

The Cockburn’s blend is 45% Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca from Quinta dos Canais, with the balance made up of grapes from old vineyards at nearby Quinta das Amendoeiras.

Managing director and master blender Miguel Corte-Real said: “The Cockburn’s 2007 vintage will be recorded as one of the finest. The wine’s depth will ensure a long and perfect ageing potential.

“The combination of grape varieties has resulted in a very intense and tannic rich wine, forming a firm and solid base.”

Quinta dos Canais is a blend of 72% Touriga Nacional and 28% Touriga Roriz. The Roriz was picked from a vineyard close to the top of the property on the final two days of the harvest.

Cockburn’s is owned by Beam Global and distributed by Maxxium UK.
