1965 Port Vintage Report

Port wines from 1965 make a great wine gift, whether for a birthday or anniversary. Ports of this year were shaped by a hot dry summer, with a little welcome sporadic rain. In general they are rich and powerful port wines with burnt coffee bean tawny characteristics typical of a hot vintage. The vintage was not declared by the major port houses who were looking ahead to the glorious 66 vintage, and there are very few single quintas port around, however there are some outstanding colheita ports available such as the highly recommended 1965 Taylors Single Harvest Port - (link above).

VWP Port buyers recommendation: Dr Tony Carter, port buyer for VWP recommends this as the best colheita/single harvest port. "This port from the world's oldest port house has a lively amber colour. Aroma of great impact, with dried fruits, mocha, orange peel and liqueur. Wonderful balance and a superb finish.".
This Kopke Port from the excellent 1965 harvest is the premium quality port of this type. The port is aged in wooden barrel until bottling in 2015.
The hand stenciled Kopke Port bottles express the traditional artisan quality and nostalgic appeal long associated with the enjoyment of the finest ports.

Fonseca Port, 1965

Guimaraens Single Quinta Port

Deep red, the colour of black cherry juice; 70% opaque. Dusty apples on the nose, with some spicy tobasco. Sweet in the mouth, red jelly beans but little fruit. The jelly beans come through strongly on the mid-palate. A hot aftertaste with lots of ginger that lasts a long time before dark cherry skins and black chocolate make up the finish. This is a nice port.

Graham's Port, 1965

Malvedos Vintage Port

Wonderful on the nose, full of rich spices and sweet cranberries - really very attractive. Gentle golden sultana fruit on the palate, very mature flavour profile but with plenty of dried fruits and delicious complex spices. Fragrant aftertaste with just touch of spirit before a nutty and delicious long finish that turns into icing sugar flavours. Drinking very nicely at the moment. Reviewed by Alex Bridgeman 2015, TPF.

Krohn Port, 1965

Vintage Port
Includes Wooden Presentation Case

Tasting note: Tawny brown of medium intensity and a narrow amber rim. The nose of this wine is sumptuous in its richness and complexity. The undercurrent of creamy butterscotch aroma is overlaid with notes of vanilla and raisin, a discreet fragrance of violets and pungent resiny scents of garigue. The palate is round and velvety, finishing with a surge of rich caramel flavour. A seductive Vintage Port, one of the best examples from this year.

Messias, 1965

Colheita Port, Douro

Only bottled in 2015, this 1965 Colheita port from Messias has a tawny colour. Fruity and fresh, with a bouquet that brings out the aromas of dried fruits, roasted nuts, wood and spices due to the prolonged time this wine has spent in cask and due to the gradual oxidation which created a soft and harmonious port full of complex flavour characteristics. The finish is long and satisfying.

Colheita Port Storage and Serving Advice:
Colheita Port should be stored in a cool and dry place, sheltered from light and temperature fluctuations, and the bottle should remain in an upright position.
