1964 Port Vintage Report

A bottle of port from 1964 makes the perfect 60 year old wine gift in 2024, whether for a birthday or anniversary. Our wine buyer recommends the single harvest colheita ports such as the as these are drinking very well. They also come with the added advantage that they can be savoured for months after opening. The 1964 port vintage was a challenging year due to fluctuating weather conditions; a small amount of single quinta port was made but it is very rare. However, some truly excellent single harvest Colheitas were produced. The weather at the start of the year was unsettled, with rain and thunderstorms at the end of July followed by a hot, dry August which developed the vines. The hot weather continued throughout the season and into the harvest, when it began to fluctuate. The grapes harvested were more raisin than the winemakers would like and this is reflected in the small amounts of port produced.

Kopke, 1964

Colheita Port
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast

This 1964 Colheita Port from Kopke was made with traditional Douro grape varieties harvested in 1964. It was then aged in oak casks for over half a century, resulting in a complex bouquet of dried fruit, milk chocolate and freshly ground coffee on the nose. The palate has a good structure and acidity with notes of apricot, runny honey. It is an exceptional wine that is ready to drink now.


Reviews: "With a light amber colour, reveals a nose full of elegance and character, where the dried fruits are blended with the light sensations of chocolate and coffee. In the mouth it’s an attractive, velvety and involving wine.

Quinta do Noval Nacional, 1964

Quinta do Noval Nacional- Vintage Port.

1964 Quinta do Noval Nacional is undoubtedly one of the most legendary fortified wines in the world. It is produced from a small area at the heart of the Quinta do Noval vineyard planted with ungrafted vines that have remained untouched by Phylloxera

"Palish red-brown. Currant, fresh herbs, coffee and mellow wood tones on the slightly shallow, evolved nose. Offers an attractive mid-palate sweetness but comes across as quite light, finishing with slightly drying tannins and a sugary, caramel-like quality. Faded with air. "This has been on a plateau for the last 20 years," noted Seely. I'd drink it over the next ten years.
