Dow's Port, 1985

Vintage Port

"Drinking beautifully now at early optimal maturity, this has at least another few years of development in front of it and many years of drinking pleasure after that. Now it is nicely developed, well integrated, juicy and ripe with a nice balance between its power, weight, and texture; it is succulent but still elegant. Delicious. Really excellent."

Fonseca Port, 1985

Vintage Port MAGNUM 1.5L

** Please note this is a rare magnum format **

Tasting note: Deep inky ruby with a broad red rim just turning to brick at the edge. Generous and seductive nose redolent of blackcurrant and cherry. Dense, luscious black fruit laced with dark chocolate, liquorice and roasted coffee. Exotic herbal and resiny scents emerge an hour after decanting. Later the fruit becomes more luscious and creamier, with rich raspberry jam flavours overlaying the dark fruity base. The full round palate is supported by thick well-integrated tannins and delivers an abundance of luscious chocolate and blackcurrant flavour which lingers into the long velvety finish.

Fonseca Port, 1985

Vintage Port
perfect provenance | released from the Fonseca cellars in Porto.

Excellent Provenance. These bottles of Fonseca 1985 Vintage Port have been shipped straight from Fonseca's Cellars in Oporto to our cellars in Fordingbridge. They are in perfect condition.

The 1985 Fonseca Vintage Port has a lovely nose of maturing port, finely styled and just screaming quality. The palate carries a svelte texture, with a creamy, flattering character. There is purity, balance, a clean, bright quality and despite this lots of appealing grip. This has great impact, and yet is so welcoming and alluring. Excellent wine, and a great example of the vintage. (November 2006).

Dense ruby/purple with the Oriental spice-box aroma,

Periquita, 1985

José Maria da Fonseca

Periquita is renowned for being the first ever, in Portugal, bottled red wine. That’s where its originality comes from. And existing since 1850 we’ve been around to celebrate the Portuguese way of life: laid-back, relaxed, warm, fruity and with a spicy nose. That’s what Portugal is all about and that we want you to enjoy. The history of Periquita is interwoven with the story of José Maria da Fonseca itself, beginning in the 1820s when the founding father of the company, José Maria da Fonseca arrived in Lisbon and bought several local properties. One such purchase, most probably in 1846, was Cova da Periquita.

Vintage port
MAGNUM (1.5L)

Please note this is a Magnum Bottle (1.5 L)

The 1985 Porto Feist Vintage Port is a very nice mature Port wine. It has mature amber/tawny colour. On the nose there are some notes of red berries, coffee and hints of liquorice and ginger.

This Port House was founded in London by two German cousins H. and C.J. Feist in 1836 and opened up in Oporto 1870. Carl Feist left the management in Porto to his son-in-law J.H. Speich in 1921. Barros took over the house in 1953 and was then bought by Sogevinus in 2006.

Recioto, 1985

Righetti Luigi

"Recioto," as in "Recioto della Valpolicella," refers to a dessert wine made from grapes that were dried on mats after picking. This process turns the grapes closer to raisins, concentrating the flavors. The wines are lovely and taste how you'd expect raisins-turned-wine to taste, rich and sweet.

Taylor's Port, 1985

Vintage Port

"Typical for Taylor's. Notes of woodspice and pepper, very slightly spirity. Nevertheless, a delicious texture on entry, supple and stylish, although with a very firm weight, firm tannins and good acids. Again this is fine to drink now, although it still holds some potential now. Very good indeed, bordering on excellent. From a Port Styles tasting." 17.5+/20 (November 2007), Wine Doctor (online).

Vintage Port (Library stock from Taylors in Oporto)

These bottles have excellent provenance coming directly from Taylors in Oporto where they have been stored since bottling.

Medium ruby. Beautiful aromas of flowers and fresh plum, with hints of stems. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with gorgeous silky tannins and a long, long finish. This 1985 Port vintage is just starting to come around and offers wonderful flavors. Long life ahead, but ready to try.

Warre's Vintage Port, 1985

Vintage Port
bin-soiled labels

Warre's 1985 Vintage Port from the outstanding 1985 Vintage.

Reviews: "Lovely orange skins nose, together with nuts and figs. On the palate, it has finesse, elegance and such a sweet kickback. Massively enchanting and, now it is over the magic 20 years, perfection to drink."
Serena Sutcliffe , Cuisine & Wine Asia 2008

Very very dark. Sweet, spicy, liquorice nose. Very broad start to the palate and then dried fruits on the finish. Lots of firm tannins still. Still relatively embryonic. Heat on the finish. Lovely spice on the finish. Not the most stereotypically feminine Warre style of wine.

Bertani

This wine is made from grapes harvested in various vineyards located on hills in the Valpolicella zone (Mezzane and Tregnago hills).

Notes: Color: strong ruby red. Clear and transparent. Bouquet: notes of vanilla and ethereal airs depending on the period of aging in the barrel; notes of sweet fruits such as currants, blueberries, cherries depending on the varieties of grapes. Flavor: wine with a velvety, raisiny character combined with the structure and typical stylish bitterness to give it good balance.

The Barros 1983 Vintage Port is a beautifully mature port ready for drinking now.

Chateau Cos d'Estournel, 1983

St Estephe, 2nd Growth Classification

This is a very fine 1983: far superior on the nose to the 1988. Damson, mulberry and a touch of earth. Fine definition. Perhaps even a little mint leaf. The palate is well-defined with rounded, plummy damson fruit. Not complex but there is a vigor and charm here. Fresh acidity. Becomes quite minerally in the finish. Drinking superbly now, but it will not keep much longer.

Chateau Filhot, 1983

Sauternes 2eme Cru Classe

Chateau Filhot is an old and large estate. When Henri de Vaucelles took control of the estate in 1974 he began the process of replanting the vineyards and renovating the winery. It is during this transition that this bottle from 1983 was produced.

This is an interesting Sauternes to taste. The colour and texture of the wine is young but the flavours are very mature, having become primarily that of spiced apple and orange peel.

Chateau La Lagune, 1983

Haut Medoc, 3rd Growth Classification

Continuing to develop gracefully, the 1983 La Lagune is close to full maturity. The colour remains a healthy dark ruby. The nose offers up those aromatic, plummy, roasted nut, black-cherry scents that remind me of a red burgundy. Soft, round, expansive flavours reveal fine richness and depth, and the low acidity and moderate tannins give the wine definition and uplift. The finish is long, crisp, and exuberant.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1983

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 91 Points - Robert Parker ***
*** 94-96 Points - Wine Journal ***

Reviews: "Evolving in a positive fashion, 1983 is turning out to be a fine vintage for Mouton. Although not a big wine, this medium-weight Mouton displays an attractive nose of blackcurrants, black-cherries, olives, and minerals. Medium-bodied, with sweet but noticeable tannin in the finish, as well as beautiful elegance and complexity, this wine is close to reaching its plateau of maturity. I have always thought it resembled this property's 1966. It should last for another 20 years. Last tasted, 7/93." Robert Parker Wine Advocate 1993

"Dense cedary nose with lots of plum, cassis and cigar box aromas.
