1980 Burmester Port

40 Year Old Vintage Port
Includes Presentation Box
Special Offer | Was £119 | Now £99

This 1980 Vintage Port from Burmester has outstanding provenance! This bottle has been stored at the Burmester cellars on Porto since bottling until it was acquired by us earlier this year.

The 1980 Burmester is a beautiful tawny colour indicating maturity. On the nose it has cocoa, chocolate together with a notes of tropical fruit. On the palate this is quite complex - medium bodied with well integrated, tannins and tropical fruit flavours, there is also a little spiciness in the mouth that adds to the experience. Long, long finish. This is in a good place and should hold well for the next decade or so.

Price: £99.00 (4 in Stock)

Bairrada, 1980

Frei Joao - Reserva

Caves S. Joao, established in 1920, became a dominant force in Portuguese wine making in the early 20th century with their houses Porta dos Cavaleiros in Dao and Frei Joao in Bairrada. Given the shifting trends in consumer preferences, Bairrada and Dao fell to obscurity in the 1990s when critical influence drove the demand for bigger, extracted, warmer climate wines. As in all things, however, what comes around goes around! Sure enough, 20 years later savvy consumers and food-conscious sommeliers are looking for finesse and freshness and heading back to Bairrada and Dao. Wines that when young had a vegetal character,

Tawny Port

Graham's 40 Years Old is made from wines of the very highest quality which, following careful selection, are matured in seasoned oak casks of until their peak of maturity is reached. These are among the most demanding and challenging styles of Port to produce requiring great skill and years of experience from the winemaker and blender.
