Declared by some shippers, despite the war, and in some cases declared and bottled in 1945 to celebrate Victory. First Vintage to be bottled exclusively in Portugal, rather than shipped in cask as was customary.
Little known, and production was small due to continued post-war restrictions, but well-cellared wines are still a pleasure.

tasting note year
This is a silky, classy, elegant, mature Vintage Port with a complex character of fruit on the nose and palate. Medium red with a lighter edge, delicate fresh raspberry and currant aromas, medium-bodied, with silky, elegant fruit flavours, medium tannins and a very sweet finish. Stunning.
label stained but complete - level in neck.
