Palmer Port, 1940
Single Harvest White Tawny Port
Description and Reviews:
1940 Colheita Port - 50cl Bottle. Exclusive to VWP.
The grapes for this wine were being harvested when Europe was at war and the Battle of Britain was raging in the English skies. This beautiful rare port-wine has been stored in seasoned oak casks since the 1940 harvest until it was bottled this year.
Tasting Notes: A deep, dense light oak colour and, as befits its age, a light emerald halo on the rim. Powerful, racy nose with very complex aromas of spices, an ethereal peaty quality like a single malt. Notes of almond, walnut with a citrus zest. Clean acidity on the palate in balance with a harmonious sweetness. Good density and resolved mouthfeel. An eternal finish - history in a glass.
The wine is ready to drink and does not require decanting. The bottle should be kept upright protected from direct sunlight.
Excellent. Bottled 2019
