1944 Port Vintage Report

1944-vintage-portThe 1944 Port vintage was not declared; no Vintage Port or Single Quinta port was produced in this year. However, some excellent Colheita and Tawny Ports from 1944 were made and we are proud to offer one of the largest collections in the UK. Making the perfect 75 year old wine gifts for a birthday or anniversary, these Colheita ports are true rarities which have been barrel aged until a special bottling commissioned by Vintage Wine and Port. The 1944 Kopke Colheita Port has been selected by the producer as being of the highest quality, and we would recommend it as a truly excellent gift. These colheita ports from the 1944 harvest have already undergone oxidative ageing and as with all tawny port can therefore be savoured over two months after opening.

Special offer | Was £425 | Now £345

Quinta da Devesa 1944 Tawny Colheita Port.
We are delighted to exclusively bring you a piece of history. This was one of the earliest surviving vintages made by Quinta da Devesa after it was acquired by the Fortunato family (in 1941). The 1944 is made from grapes harvested in that year - when the world was at war. The casks have been carefully maintained by the family, ageing gracefully until it was bottled in 2022. The the current generation are delighted to be able to share this rare Port with you, its longevity a testament to the previous generations who put so much care and attention into its creation back in 1944.

Kopke, 1944

Colheita Port, Douro

An outstanding 1944 Single Harvest Colheita port.

This 1944 Port from Kopke, the worlds oldest port house is a true rarity. There are no remaining stocks at Kopke and so these are some of the last bottles for sale.

This port has a bright amber colour with a brown-tawny halo. Elegant nose of dried fruits, well integrated with wood notes. Light and fragrant, with wonderful volume and structure. A wine with great freshness and multi-dimensional flavours. Delicate and persistent finish.

Colheita, or single harvest ports, are aged in the barrel. This is a contrast to vintage ports which are aged in the bottle and only have a short drinking window after opening.
