CHARACTERISTICS OF THE 2007 VINTAGE The year 2006/7 was especially rainy during the months of November, February, May and June. This was extremely positive as it replenished the water reserves in the soil that were low. Comparing to the averages of the past 30 years, temperatures were higher than normal from November throughout January, and cooler than usual in May and June. This combination of adequate rain and cooler temperatures was especially favourable during the cycles of veraison and maturation, which both took place under regular and temperate conditions. Quantities were average to low. Harvest took place from the 12 September to the 20 October under magnificent sunshine with grapes in perfect sanitary conditions. The first tastings revealed wines of excellent quality marked by a lovely elegance, balance and finesse, with very pure delicate fruit. TASTING NOTES The 2007 Silval has a very seductive bouquet, vibrant fruit and silky tannins, making this an unusually attractive and accessible young Vintage Port. It shares with our previous declarations of Silval the characteristics of smoothness, elegance, openness, and readiness to drink while relatively young, and at the same time retaining sufficient structure to age for many years in bottle.
