 Fonseca 40 Year Aged Tawny Port, 1977

Fonseca 40 Year Aged Tawny Port


Fonseca 40 Year Aged Tawny Port - (Comes in original Fonseca Box with 2 Tasting Glasses as illustrated)
Description: Tawny Ports of this age, the oldest designation allowed, are true rarities.

This sublime port of great age and rarity has been aged in casks for an average age of 40 years. The port shows the old olive-gold hue of its many years in cask. Decades of evaporation have concentrated the wine to an exceptional density. Impressions of clove, nutmeg and an intense nuttiness converge both on the bouquet and palate. The wine's lush, almost viscous texture culminates in a finish of incredible length.

Peter Symington recommends, “Aged Tawny Ports are not designed to age in bottle and therefore should not be kept in a cellar for further ageing.

1977 Taylor's Vintage Port
Robert Parker writes.... "This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades.

It has a flavour of raisins, prunes, cherries and other dried fruits which have been soaked in a fine alcohol in small barrels for years until their flavours have been thoroughly infused the port. As a port it is surprisingly light considering its age in that it doesn’t have a heaviness to it. The mouth feel is quite light, approachable and drinkable. The finish is very long - this is an elegant wine.

*Cellartracker review*

Following the acquisition of Cockburn’s in 2006, the Symington family were surprised to find 116 cases of 1977 Vintage Port in a corner of the company’s cellars. Cockburn’s famously did not ‘declare’ a 1977 Vintage, although virtually every other Port house did so.

Cockburn Port, 1977


Vintage Port (New release) 6x75cl Bottles (including individual wooden gift boxes)
Description: 1977 Vintage Port Bicentenary Limited Edition

Following the acquisition of Cockburn’s in 2006, the Symington family were surprised to find 116 cases of 1977 Vintage Port in a corner of the company’s cellars. Cockburn’s famously did not ‘declare’ a 1977 Vintage, although virtually every other Port house did so.

Cockburn’s had been under multinational ownership since 1962 and the head office strangely turned down the request of the company’s winemakers in Portugal to ‘declare’ the 1977 Vintage, apparently a vintage offer did not fit into the multinational’s global corporate plan, despite excellent weather conditions and the obvious quality of the wine.

Dow's Port, 1977


Vintage Port MAGNUM
Description: Please note that this is a rare magnum format (1.5 L) presented in a Dows presentation case.

Medium cranberry red center and slight bricking on the edge. Intoxicating floral fragrance that filled the room, during its nine hour decant; accented by anise, plum and raspberry notes and a bit of spirit. Fresh, fleshy grape, dark cherry and fig flavors melded with underpinnings of licorice, chocolate and warming spirit. It's developing into a stunning middle-aged Port at 34 years of age, with little signs of nearing peak yet. Rich and multi-faceted, smooth and velvety ... even more so the second day it was opened.

Tawny Port (includes presentation box as pictured)
Description: Graham's 40 Years Old is made from wines of the very highest quality which, following careful selection, are matured in seasoned oak casks of until their peak of maturity is reached. These are among the most demanding and challenging styles of Port to produce requiring great skill and years of experience from the winemaker and blender.

Vintage Port (labels damaged and bin soiled, date visible on metal tag)
Description: From the outstanding 1977 vintage. The excellent Niepoort is one of the smallest producers of port. Their ports are sought after by collectors and port lovers.

Reviews:
"Light, bright red color. Perfume of candied red fruits and roses. Tasted of red fruits, roses and violets. More roses and violets. Some citrus peel as well, but muted. Silky, seductive and elegant. Alcohol well integrated. This was a truly amazing and luscious port, even if not what I expected. More fruit and flowers than most ports are, but just beautiful. Glad I still have one more bottle."
