1942 Port Vintage Report

This year was, despite WWII, declared by some shippers such as Graham's. Production was small due to continued post-war restrictions, but those wines which have been cared for are still drinking well now. These would make an excellent 80 year old wine gift for a birthday or anniversary this year.

Butler Nephew Vintage Port, 1942

Vintage Port

A very rare bottle of Butler Nephew 1942. This historic house was founded in 1829 and had an excellent reputation for producing fine vintage ports until it was acquired and integrated into the Sandeman port house. The 1942 Butler Nephew has a mature tawny colour. The nose is still complex and enjoyable with herbal notes and molasses. The port is medium body on the palate with a medium plus finish - a very attractive and enjoyable old port.

Graham's Port, 1942

Vintage Port (in neck, badly chipped capsule, unlabelled)

Declared by some shippers, despite the war, and in some cases declared and bottled in 1945 to celebrate Victory. First Vintage to be bottled exclusively in Portugal, rather than shipped in cask as was customary.

Little known, and production was small due to continued post-war restrictions, but well-cellared wines are still a pleasure.
