1947 Wine and Port Vintage
Bordeaux: The 1947 wine vintage was another superb, legendary year for Bordeaux and Burgundy.
Vintage Port: The 1947 port vintage was outstanding. An outstanding vintage that produced elegant and delicate ports and which was declared by only 11 shippers. Well cellared wines are drinking well and will last for many more years. Very popular in the wine starved 1950's which is why little remains.

Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape. Heady aromas of rose, leather, vanilla, cherry, pepper, cranberry, strawberry. Fruits are perfectly knitted with the tannins and acidity. It's a powerful wine but remarkably subtle. Don't underestimate it and certainly serve it with food to show at it's best. Nebbiolo has naturally high tannins and acidity, so it will take on full-flavoured, rich foods no problem at all.

Butler Nephew Vintage Port, 1947
Vintage Port (Excellent condition)
Review on cellar Tracker.
"I loved the 1947 Butler Nephew & Co Vintage Port. It had a floral, spicy nose with pure clean spirit. It tasted of chocolate and cherries and was full and plump. Balance was superb and it was so fresh and clean on the finish."

Cockburn Port, 1947
Vintage Port Bottled by Cockburn and Campbell
Mid red in colour, paling on the rim. Alcohol protruding on the nose over a lovely mixed spice and aniseed. Lovely sweet raisins and dried cranberries in the mouth intermingled with licorice root. Very complex in the mouth. The aftertaste is sweet, pleasant, but short. 90/100 AHB (The Port Forum)

Fonseca Port, 1947
Single Quinta Vintage Port
This is a special treat at the end of the evening. Murky copper coloured with a rich intense raisoned nose with bay leaf and hints of brandy butter and caramel. The palate is full and powerful but with a surprising freshness and lift. Dense and flavoursome with rich dark coffee, cloves, chocolate and toffee apple flavours. Absolutely lovely with endless length.

Aszu Essencia (Half Litre, 50cl)
This 1947 Tokaji Aszu Essencia is a sweet wine of stunning concentration and complexity. A rich complex wine with incredibly deep concentration, bitter oranges, ginger, manuka honey aromas and flavours, but though super sweet it is perfectly balanced with succulent citrus acidity. Harmony, balance and depth, these are absolutely world class.
After the Essencia, the Aszú Essencia (often confounded with the Essencia) is the second highest quality level among Tokaj wines. Its preparation is the same as that for the Aszú, and it is produced only in excellent years. The quality level is not indicated anymore by the number of puttonyos. …
