1952 Port Vintage Report


1962-wine-gifts
A few shippers produced some reasonable 1952 ports, although it was only a small production - not a declared year. Colheita (single harvest tawny) Ports from this year are lovely, and would make an excellent 70 year old wine gift for a birthday or anniversary celebration this year.

Burmester, 1952

Colheita Port, Douro
Presented in Gift Tube
***95 Points - Robert Parker***

We are delighted to offer a UK exclusive on Burmester Colheita Ports.

Reviews:
"(2015) Lovely dark caramel colour, with some truffle and tea notes, edges of olive and green fruits (fig). The maturity on the palate is obvious, again with fabulous sweetness and brown sugar richness, Muscovado and walnuts, but the hallmark of the fresh orange and lemon acidity plays against that and the coffee and walnut cake sweetness and richness." Tom Cannavan Winepages.com

J W Hart, 1952

Colheita Port, Douro

Tasting note: With amber colour and golden hints this wine has an intense bouquet, dominated by the remarkable presence of the dried fruits with a refined touch of spices. In the mouth it is concentrated, firm and elegant. This wine of great deepness and with a noble character has an impressive and persistent finish.

Graham's Port, 1952

Single Harvest Tawny Port
Includes Original Gift Box

Graham’s 1952 Single Harvest Tawny Port was first bottled in 2012 to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in a limited release of individually numbered bottles.

Attractive auburn, coppery tones with subtle gradations of pale orange and green on the rim denote its venerable age. With mesmerizing aromas of honeysuckle, Seville orange, almonds and soft caramel, it has unbelievable vitality and zest for a wine of its years. The palate is pure seduction, concentrated yet silky with gorgeous, soft citrus fruit melding with subtle butterscotch and honey flavours. Present — both aromatically and in the mouth — are appealing notes of toffee and marzipan.

Messias, 1952

Colheita Port, Douro

The Messias colheita port from the outstanding 1952 vintage has been aged in a barrel until bottling in 2020.
The extended barrel aging has given this wine a complex fusion of dried fruit and cedar notes. On the palate the wine is smooth and full bodies with plenty nuts and sweet fruit on the palate, fine balance. A tremendous finish which goes on forever. There's no question about the quality on display here.

Niepoort Port, 1952

This wine has light tinges of ruby in the heart of this wine that mostly show a well-evolved color. Initially there was a minty note that will delight port lovers. Concentrated flavours and good length on the finish. This wine has plenty of life left
