1975 Port Vintage Report

1975-vintage-port
The 1975 vintage port declaration came shortly after the 1974 revolution. Under pressure of nationalisation, the port shippers were keen to show what was possible after a run of weak vintages. Whilst the ports are not in the same league as the other 70's declarations (1970, 1977), they have stood up well and represent a superb quality vs price ratio. Recent tastings (e.g. Port Forum 75@40 tasting) have demonstrated that the best are elegant and a pleasure to drink. The wines are now fully mature with the top producers producing good '75's that will grow old gracefully. They are elegant fruity and well balanced but not big.

Kopke Port, 1975

Colheita Port (Includes Kopke presentation box)

A superb vintage year that developed well for both Vintage and Colheita ports. Macaroon, almond and cherry highlights along a deep, smooth caramel backbone deliver a long, creamy, toasty finish.

Reviews and Awards:
92 points in CellarTracker

Attractive amber colour. Rich and perfumed nose dominated by the presence of the dried fruits, harmoniously involved by the spice notes. Smooth and silky in the taste, reveals an amazing structure and a good volume. The elegance describes this delicate whole and is extended in the endless and distinct finish.

Calem Port, 1975

Colheita Port (Includes Calem Box as shown)

This is a superb colheita port from Calem. It has a beautiful dark tawny colour and a smooth bouquet of classic tawny notes (wood, caramel etc.). The palate was more acidic and a bit alcoholic which prickled a pit on the tounge. Not terribly sweet, but nice with a healthy aftertaste of nuts, coffee, tobacco and caramel.

Vintage Port

Quinta do Noval, 1975

Vintage Port

The 1975 Quinta Noval outshines the 1975 vintage.

"The beautiful Quinta do Noval is undoubtedly the most famous port producer, largely because their 1931 and 1927 were to vintage port what the 1947 Cheval Blanc and 1945 Mouton-Rothschild were to the Bordeaux trade - divine, monumental wines of extraordinary depth of flavor... The 1975 has turned out to be charming, fruity and actually better than the 1970 or 1963, which is inexplicable." Robert Parker Buying Guide 2nd Ed 1989.

Quinta do Noval Nacional, 1975

Vintage Port

"Deeper in colour (as you would expect) but not deep for a Nacional, mid-garnet, thin browning rim; rather odd medicinal aromas, stewed plums; soft, sweet plummy fruit, rather simple and lacking structure with a slightly burnt edge, fuller with some grip on the finish but not really satisfying. I suppose this is not so bad for a 1975 though. Drink now and over the next ten years. 14.5. [Deep colour but already looking quite mature, beautiful liquorice and chocolate aromas, elegant concentration of flavour, firm, milk chocolate finish.]" Richard Mayson.

Taylor's Port, 1975

Taylors Vintage Port (JEROBOAM 3L)

The is a rare Jeroboam 3L bottle of Taylors vintage port.

"This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades. The 1975 has turned out richly fruity, supple, and offers delicious drinking for the near future." Robert Parker Buyers Guide 1989.
