1989 Port Vintage Report

1989 was not a general declaration of Vintage for Ports. However this was a good year that produced some attractive, full bodied single quinta wines with plenty of appeal. A Port like our 1989 Messias Vintage Port , recommended by our wine buyer, makes an excellent 34 year old wine gift for a 34th birthday or anniversary.

Palmer Port, 1989

White Port
50cl Bottle

1989 White Colheita Port - 50cl Bottle. Exclusive to VWP.
This rare white port-wine has been stored in seasoned oak casks since the 1989 harvest until it was bottled this year. White ports are a true rarity and this 30 year old is an outstanding example.

Tasting Notes: The 1989 palmer has a golden amber colour. On the nose it has a very fine, elegant aroma of honey, and peach infused with a spicy redolence of citrus peel and cinnamon. There are layers of complexity here with mint and a touch of walnut. The palate is perfectly balanced with a fresh acidity and sweetness. It has an amazing rich mellow flavour and an elegant citrus finish that lasts for minutes.

Kopke, 1989

Vintage Port
Presented in original Kopke Gift Box

A very rare bottle of Kopke VP. This is one of those noses where you can keep going back and finding things you think it smells like. I really like that. A bit punchy initially with it's alcohol, the finish is where this wine really shines. Starts off as fresh popcorn, turning hazelnuts and honey, then granola and brown sugar..... off into a 40-second long finish with various evolution in which I am sure different people would find different things. Truly delicious. This wine is very, very good. I love it when a wine forces you to think about it, and this does just that. Captivating, complex, intense and delicious.
