1927 Port Vintage Report

The 1927 Port vintage is a legend! It is widely accepted as one of the great vintage Port years of the 20th century, declared by about 30 shippers. The weather through the growing season allowed for a relatively early harvest. The harvest was enormous and most Port houses declared a far larger quantity than was usual in vintage years. Despite the large volumes released, quality was extremely high, with concentrated fruit and fine structure, which has allowed the wines to age extremely well. The release was at a time of economic depression and much of the vintage was unsold and so ended up being blended with standard ruby Ports.

Cockburn Port, 1927

Vintage Port (top shoulder, unlabelled)

A legendary wine drinking well today. Rich berry aromas soar from the glass, graced by notes of toffee and coffee. The alcohol is well integrated, almost hidden in the masses of rich, chocolaty fruit and supple, velvety mouthfeel. Shows great length on the finish, which picks up gorgeous hints of toffee and caramel. Absolutely delicious; it would be hard to say this is fading because it's so good right now. Drink or hold.

Dow's Port, 1927

Vintage Port (UK Bottled Hatch Mansfield)

Vintage Port (book, Suckling, 1990)
This was the second bottle I tasted within a span of four months. The first was more like a 20 year old Tawny. Medium red with a garnet rim, cherry and blackberry aromas, medium to light-bodied, with a lovely, delicate mouth-feel, quite dry, with elegant cherry flavours and a medium finish.

Michael Broadbent MW
Vintage Wine (book, Broadbent, 2002)
Late 1980s: palish rosy-tinged tawny; light, spicy, high-toned, madeira-like bouquet; still fairly sweet, medium weight, faded though remnants of power, good length, acidity.

Fonseca Port, 1927

Vintage Port

Review by AHB - Portforum.com "A lovely rich red colour, warm and dark; 90% opaque. Showing little on the nose, but the little it is showing is warm and fruity — and very nice. A beautiful palate, soft entry with poise and balance. The fruit is generous, sweet and ripe and still plentiful. The palate is big and rich; stunning for a port of this age. The aftertaste is amazing — so full of fruit, of rich burnt fruitcake; mouthfilling and immense. This is stunning, stunning port.".

48 hours later a 6cl sample bottle was tasted which showed even mor ecomplexity, being sweeter and rounder than the pop 'n' pour version.

Gould Campbell Vintage Port, 1927

Vintage Port

Gould Campbell has come to establish a reputation for excellent quality of their Ports and their Vintage Ports in particular. Once described as the "Saab of Vintage Ports", a comparison to the good-value and totally reliable, with a touch of slightly quirky flair, Swedish motor-cars.
The vineyards used for Gould Campbell are based in the Alto Douro area where yields tend to be very low but the grapes produce Ports of immense complexity and depth. The winery is situated in Pinhão where modern temperature controlled fermentation tanks are used. However a significant proportion of Gould Campbell

Martinez Vintage Port, 1927

Vintage Port (High Shoulder)

Port Forum Martinez vertical AHB Notes.

Golden orange with a pale rim, 20%. Sweet nose of fragrant orange and hibiscus flowers - expressive and delicious. Later this became sweeter and more balanced. Lightweight on entry, with sweet golden sultanas. On the mid-palate and late palate there is more acidity that provides fragrance and balance. A touch of tannin shows as a hint of dryness on the palate; quite light overall. A huge aftertaste, then a big finish of green wood that lasts for ages. 93/100.

Taylor's Port, 1927

Vintage Port

Taylor’s 1927 vintage port is one of the most sought-after and expensive of all vintage Ports, and this wine, from an acclaimed vintage, is at the top of the tree. Released at 'just' 20 pence a bottle in 1929 much of the stock remained unsold due to large volumes and economic depression. Now nearly one hundred years later, this is one of the most sublime and most sought after ports.

Critics reviews:
95 Points James Suckling. " This blows the '35 off the table. It is incredibly concentrated yet superbly balanced. It lives up to Taylor's lofty reputation. Medium ruby-garnet, with intense raspberry and blackberry aromas, full-bodied, with rich, velvety, ripe raspberry flavors and a long thick, rich finish.

Taylor's Port, 1927

Vintage Port - UK bottled Whitwams

The 1927 Taylors Vintage Port is neither too young nor too old but just right. It has a gorgeous floral, spirit lift coupled with aromas of bitter chocolate, iodine and raisins. In the mouth it is lacy, full and gentle, filling the mouth with highly perfumed flavours and finishing dry, savoury and long.
