Fladgate Partnership and Symingtons announce 2022 Ports

April 24, 2024

Douro heavyweights the Symington family and the Fladgate Partnership have both announced the forthcoming release of Ports from the “remarkably dry” 2022 vintage: Taylor Fladgate Quinta de Vargellas and Fonseca Guimaraens Vintage Ports.

“The 2022 vintage Ports are the result of a very dry and hot growing season which was broken by some very welcome rain at the beginning of harvest,” explained managing director Adrian Bridge. “The unique character of the Taylor Fladgate Quinta de Vargellas vineyard is clearly expressed in the 2022 wines, and we therefore considered it appropriate to bottle this year as a single quinta vintage. As for the Fonseca Guimaraens 2022, this is showing the characteristic aromatic opulence and voluptuous ripe black fruit character, that are the hallmarks of the Guimaraens vintage style.”
