Twenty years ago aged vintage port seemed to be readily available. Today, it is very difficult to find, especially in Australia.
We are delighted to have secured original cases of carefully aged Vintage Port from the excellent declared vintage of 1960. The Ports have been housed in a cold, dark, moist cellar in the UK.
We have four different houses: Taylor, Croft, Dow and Warre - all big names who produce serious, ageworthy wines.
We have decided to offer these great old ports - each now over 50 years of age - as a 4-Bottle Pack. The wines are now mature and ready to drink!
Tasting notes for the four wines by Michael Broadbent, guru of aged VP.
"..hefty, sweet, chocolatey on the nose; medium-sweet, fairly full-bodied."
"Stylish, attractive, sweet but lean, nice weight, firm dry finish."
"...almost beetroot-like colour, fragrant as before but a sweeter impact, lovely flavour, complete with dry finish.
"...lovely, slightly singed, almost muscatel aroma; very sweet, lovely flavour, texture and length."
Normally $1050.00 a 4-Bottle Pack
Pre Arrival Price $895.00
For 4 wines over 50 years old we think this is a steal.
Only 8 Packs available (the rest will go into my cellar)
Wines will arrive early 2013. Due to the moist cellaring conditions all bottles have modern labels. Full vintage and maker details are on the cork.
