1950 Vintage Port Vintage Report

In Portugal, the Tawny (Colheita) Ports that were produced are excellent and a small crop of good quality vintage ports were produced. 1950 was also known as the "Lady's Vintage", this was a delicate and subtle Vintage. Declared by some but not all Port houses. 1950 Ports are still a pleasant and fruity but are now at the end of the drinking window. Most now resemble tawnies more than Vintage Port.

Burmester Port , 1950


Colheita Port
Description: This is a Colheita Port of exceptional quality and elegance. Burmester make their colheita ports from a single harvest. These "Vintage Tawny" ports are aged in small 550-litre oak barrels in the Vila Nova de Gaia Cellars. It is bottled at least seven years after aging. Tasting notes: Light tawny colour with a golden meniscus. Scented with smoky pipe tobacco, toasted hazelnut and lime zest accents which provide a wonderful bouquet. Nut driven flavors with a touch of toffee and a seamless smooth mouthfeel with plenty of zippy acid to keep it all in check. The caressing velvety aftertaste is marvellous.

Vintage Port

Taylor's Port, 1950

Taylor's Port, 1950


Special Quinta Port Vargellas
Description: - Rare bottling!

Decant: 3 hours - Bottled by Corney & Barrow. David Guimaraens reports that this could have been a single quinta port from Vargellas but that the TFP records are unclear. Very pale, very light in colour - almost the same colour as a white colheita; maybe 10% opaque. Very little on the nose, perhaps just a touch of mace. Gentle sugary sweetness on entry; a good volume of chocolate and raisin tones on the mid-palate. Lovely aftertaste, soft and floral with modest volume and lots of heat on the finish, which eventually turns into a herb lemon grass.
