The 2016 Late Bottled Vintage Port was bottled in May 2022 with 102 grams of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. It is a field blend aged for 72 months in wood. This is unfiltered, alone among the Fladgate Group's LBVs. Easily the most expressive of the Group's LBVs, this is still made in an accessible, easy fashion without big tannins or a lot of depth, and it is not supposed to be a wine to be held and aged a long time. In the long run, therefore, it isn't really much of a step up, if at all. Key trade-offs here, though, as with its siblings, are a great price point, lots of flavor and immediate accessibility. It is very elegant.
