Special Offer | Was £495 | Now £395

1940 Colheita Port - 50cl Bottle. Exclusive to VWP.
This rare port-wine has been stored in seasoned oak casks since the 1940 harvest until it was bottled this year.

Tasting Notes: The 1940 Port from Palmer has a light oak colour with a verdant edge on the rim highlighting a colheita of exceptional age and quality. Much elegance on the nose with orange peel, walnuts, figs and a touch of honey. On the palate there is a lightness that is balanced by a good acidity. This port wine delivers a beautiful flavour supported by a long, long finish. Outstanding.

The wine is ready to drink and does not require decanting.
