Branded capsule | Sold with Plain Label

This 1960 Cockburn Vintage Port is quite full-bodied, rich, alcoholic, spirited vintage port that offers meaty, chocolaty, spicy, full-bodied, alcoholic flavours. "A light tawny colour, almost a medium rose, with very slow legs. The nose smelt of marzipan, rosewater and aniseed.

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 do Noval Nacional, 1960

Vintage Port
Embossed capsule | Unlabelled | Level in Neck

“This wine is a mysterious phenomenon, a magical wine produced in extremely limited quantities and only in a few years each decade. It is the expression of a terroir and confirms something that is for me a deeply held belief. The Nacional is great because of the grapes and where they come from, not because of anything particular that we do. It has a unique personality, an extraordinary intensity and, even after many years of ageing, retains an astonishing youthfulness.” Christian Seely

The terroir: a small area at the heart of the Quinta do Noval vineyard planted with ungrafted vines and untouched by phylloxera, described as “attached to the soil of the Nation”.

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.
