Croft Port, 1960

Vintage Port

"Bright tawny with orange flecks, there are whacks of dried fruit and sultanas on the nose, with hints of bitter chocolate and Christmas pudding. The palate is sweet but balanced with a lovely acidity. A fascinating multilayered wine, with the oxidization bringing out maple syrup flavours, coupled with leather and cigar box aromas wrapped around rich dried fruit. Complex, captivating and holding up beautifully." Decanter, Fine Wine Encounter 2009.

The 1960 has a light russet core with deep tawny rim. A lovely soft, mulberry infused nose with a touch of sloes and coca that could do with a tad more delineation.

Quinta Boa Vista (lit Beautiful View Vineyard) hints at the dramatic views enjoyed by one of the most renowned vineyards in the entire Douro valley

He was a legendary figure in the history of port credited with mapping the upper regions of the Douro, only to be drowned in one of its rapids, allegedly weighed down by the weight of gold he had collected from his tenants. Forrester's life was devoted to improving the quality of port and in recognition of his endeavours the King of Portugal made him Baron Forrester.

Sandeman Vintage Port, 1960

Vintage Port

The 1960 Sandeman is a deep purple black colour, with sweet black fruits on the nose. This is mirrored on the palate, which has rich, chocolate-edged fruit. Still plenty of tannin but with so much sweet substance and nicely balanced alcohol, it is still drinking well.

Taylor's Port, 1960

Vintage Port - Excellent Provenance.

These bottles were taken from an underground cellar bin in a small country house where they have been stored since original purchase. They were unlabelled so identification was from the cork of a bottle that we opened and tasted.

This is a stunning 1960 port. The colour is deep garnet offering floral notes, coffee and cassis on the nose. On the palate, a full-bodied mouthfeel with hints of warm chocolate, coffee and raisins. Utterly complete and delicious after 60 years. 98/100 (VWP).
