1950 Port Vintage Report


1950-wine-gifts
In Portugal, the 1950 Tawny (Colheita) Ports that were produced this year are excellent and a small crop of good quality vintage ports were produced. 1950 was known as the "Lady's Vintage"; this was a delicate and subtle Vintage, declared by some but not all Port houses. 1950 Ports are still a pleasant and fruity but are at the end of the drinking window - most now resemble tawnies more than Vintage Port.

The Palmer 1950 Port is a fantastic Port wine, with a perfect balance between acidity, confit citrus aromas, nuts, and spices. It is a unique, wine, clearly evidenced by the almost 70 years of aging in French oak barrels.

1950 Kopke Port, 1950

Seventy Year Old (single Harvest) Colheita Port

The 1950 Kopke Port is a true rarity. Bright amber colour with a complex nose of dried fruits, suggestions of dried figs, nuts, almonds and hazelnuts. A harmonious whole, marked by delicious honey notes and a subtle touch of roasted peanuts. Rich and satin in the taste, reveals an excellent structure and a remarkable unctuosity. A powerful wine but also balanced and elegant with a singular persistent finish.

Colheita, or single harvest ports, are aged in the barrel. Contrast this with vintage ports which are aged in the bottle and only have a short drinking window after opening. Colheita ports have had air working on them through the cask during all the years of aging, giving them a open-life of a month or longer.

Cockburn Port, 1950

Vintage Port
Very faded labels

Reviews

"Surprisingly good depth of colour: mid-deep centre with a thin browning rim; lovely, pure scented, floral aromas, esteva (gum cistus) still fresh and fragrant; gentle, sweet fruit, still lithe, creamy milk chocolate intensity, long and fine with peppery length. Lovely balance and one of the best 1950s that I have tasted. Wyndham Fletcher (ex-Cockburn’s) described this as a ‘useful rather than a great year’. " Richard Mayson, 2012 Richard.mayson.com
