1979 Port Vintage Report

1979-portA Vintage Port from 1979 makes an excellent 41 year old wine gift for a 41st birthday or anniversary. Still drinking well, 1979 ports are part of a span of good vintages from 1977 to 1980. A very wet winter was followed by a dry hot summer and no rainfall from late June until 18th September. The crop was large and produced many quite good straight forward single-quinta wines that are now mature but will keep well for years.

Niepoort Port, 1979

Colheita Port

This rare 1979 Port from Niepoort is a lovely tawny colour with a little greenish tinge on the rim. Wonderfully dry citrus fruit hints, smoky flavours and orange peel in the nose. Dark orange chocolate, butterscotch on the palate. Rich and citrus, elegant, very well structured with a fresh, firm concentration and great length. A superb wine.
