Review:
Imperial topaz glints of fire orange on amber are followed by a spicy floral nose with flavors of citrus and macaroons and a lingering finish of dried figs and orange peel.

Barros Port, 1982

Barros Port, 1982


Colheita Port (Comes in a original wooden Barros Box as illustrated)
Description: The 1982 Barros reveals a dark golden yellow colour. Complex nose with strong cress, spices, brown sugar and coffee. Full-bodied with great balance. The palate reflects the nose with a very good length.

Having just celebrated their 100th year trading in 2013 Barros Port is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious companies producing and trading in Port. Much of their success comes from Colheita ports – old tawnies from a single year matured in cask for a minimum period of seven years. Their expertise in Colheitas has established them as the stand out producer of this style. Barros leave their Colheita ports to mature in cask until being hand bottled to order.

Graham Port, 1982


Late bottled Vintage Port, MAGNUM Format (Comes in original pine case as illustrated)

Offley Vintage Port, 1982

Offley Vintage Port, 1982


Vintage Port
Description: 90 Points fortheloveofport.com

Reviews
1982 was a year that saw a few producers choosing to declare instead of 1983. Decanted almost 9 hours, what started out as a very sweet VP has slowly changed to a drier profile with lots of leather, no shortage of violets, light tannins still peaking through, and dried cherries on the finish. The palate is showing far more mature than the dark ruby color, this is quite the enjoyable

Quinta do Noval Nacional , 1982

Quinta do Noval Nacional , 1982


Quinta do Noval Nacional
Description: 86/100 Wine Spectator
90/100 Wine Doctor

Noval is particularly famous for its Nacional, a Port produced in some years only from a 2 hectare parcel at the heart of the Noval vineyard where ungrafted vines survive. This is remarkable, because phylloxera, the root munching aphid that necessitates grafting vines onto resistant American rootstock, is endemic in the Douro

"This a gloriously wild, rich, sensual port with a rich spicy nose and flavour and a sweet, full glorious length and aftertaste" Drink now - 2033. M Broadbent *****

"Pale cherry colour. Evolved spicy, earthy nose with dusty, herby notes.

Ramos Pinto, 1982

Ramos Pinto, 1982


Vintage Port
Description: 1982 was characterised by above average temperatures and an ample water supply, resulting in a long maturation. Containing about 70% Barroca, this vintage was made almost exclusively of grapes from Quinta da Ervamoira.

The wine has discreet and generous aromas of violet, plum, chocolate and ripe fruit, with notes of wood and vanilla. Velvety in the mouth, with a smooth intensity. The wine is well balanced with a light dried prune flavour supported by ripe tannins. The wine will only improve with time.

Ramos Pinto, 1982


Late Bottled Vintage Port
Description: This is still going strong, bursting with damsons, blackcurrants, raisins and figs. Full-bodied, rich and sweet. The alcohol content was a little too harsh and assertive early on, becoming better-integrated with time and air.

Taylor's Port, 1982

Taylor's Port, 1982


Quinta de Vargellas Vintage Port
Description: Quinta de Vargellas is bottled as a single quinta vintage port in years when an overall Taylor’s Vintage is not declared. Made from grapes grown entirely on the quinta the wine is aged in wood for two years and then bottled in the same way as a declared vintage.

The reputation of these wines have acquired a stature greater than that of many shippers declared vintages. Usually maturing earlier than the declared Taylor’s years, which are famed for their longevity, Quinta de Vargellas vintage ports are cellared in Oporto until they are ready to drink.

Krohn Port , 1982

Krohn Port , 1982


Colheita single harvest port in individual wooden box
Description: Wiese & Krohn is now run by the third generation of the Falcão Carneiro family. This small boutique Port House makes some terrific Late Bottled Vintage Port, in addition to Vintage Port but my favourite is the Colheitas.

A Colheita is a vintage tawny port. Tawny is lighter in colour and style than a traditional Vintage Port but if anything is even more delicious as it is a touch more elegant. They age beautifully too and represent great value.

Youthful, medium brick red. Lots of young plummy fruit aromas, as well as dried fruit, figs and nuts on the nose. Really smooth on the palate, silky and elegant in texture with balanced acidity, more dried fruit and spice notes.
