Croft Port, 1970

Croft Port, 1970


Vintage Port
Description: From the outstanding 1970 Vintage, an wonderful port scoring 91 points.

A similar russet core, though a little clearer than the ’66. The nose has good definition and focus with an attractive bouquet of cooked meats, mulberry, spice and leather. Light and feminine, although it never really develops the nuance that I was hoping for in the glass. The palate is vigorous, note quite as elegant as the ’66, a little more alcoholic and unrefined, the finish more linear with liquorice, burnt toffee and raisin. Moderate length. Drinking now. Very fine. Neil Martin. Wine Journal.

Rating 91 points (Wine Journal).

Delaforce Vintage Port, 1970

Delaforce Vintage Port, 1970


VINTAGE PORT
Description: The nose has a slightly tawny, baked-earth edge to it, with aromas of spiced cedar wood, parma violets and sweet roasted meats. It is fresher than the wine's appearance would suggest. And the palate certainly has flesh at the beginning, and continuing through the middle, with a fair amount of structure still evident as well. In truth there are some attractive, perfumed elements to the flavour here, but also a lot of grip, and a slightly hot aspect to it as well. The finish is long, but a touch hot and fierce again. This is certainly a wine worth experiencing.

"...a definite Bordeaux-like nose! Well defined, foursquare at first, opening up nicely with maraschino cherries, cloves, burnt wood/embers and bergamot, gaining intensity all the time in the glass. The palate is very harmonious and elegant. Fleshy, harmonious, seductive on the palate with allspice, nutmeg and ginger sprinkled over the viscous finish and finally, freshly rolled tobacco on the aftertaste. Good length, powerful like many of the 1970 ports continue to be. Superb. Drink now-2020+ Neil Martin Wine Journal Tasted September 2009.

Martinez Vintage Port, 1970

Martinez Vintage Port, 1970


Vintage Port (bottled by Gilby Vintners)
Description: Review from AHB on the Port Forum

"Slightly darker than the Croft and slightly lighter than the Noval shown alongside this wine. Warm and spicy fruit on the nose, but quite faint. Good texture, with soft and orangey flavours hidden amongst lots of sweet strawberry. Tannins still showing gently with lively spiciness. Modest complexity, quite light bodied and acidic. Big aftertaste; long, lively and spicy finish. A wine to be drunk rather than kept. 85/100. Drunk 15 July 2010."
