1949 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: A poor year for the Oporto ports. Not a declaration year, we would recommend perhaps buying a "70 Years of Port" gift set such as the Taylor's 70 Years of Tawny Port , a gift box comprising a 30- and a 40- year old Tawny Port to add up to 70 years. These sets make the perfect 70 year old wine gift for a 70th birthday or anniversary.
 
Italian: 1949 wine exhibits a good vintage for most of the Italian regions. The long-lived Barolos are still drinking well today.
 
Bordeaux: The finest 1949 wines are still in full blossom, displaying remarkable richness and concentration. This is one of the quartet of remarkable vintages of the late 1940's - '45, '47, '48 and '49. Renowned wine critic Robert Parker states that this is the greatest of the four vintages possessing greater balance, harmony, and fruit than the 1945's and more complexity than the 1948's. In short the wines are magnificent!

1949 Cantine Antonio Ferrari, 1949

Il 49 di Antonio Ferrari Special offer was £195 | Now only £139

The Il Barone ‘49 shows a deep garnet colour. For something so old it is still fresh with a touch of oxidation on notes of black cherries, chocolate and espresso infused with sweet spices. The wine has a long finish. This is a wine from the 1949 wine harvest. Fermentation was arrested before complete leaving a high residual sugar content which has preserved the wine. The wine then went into large old Slovenian casks for ten years and then stored in tanks where it has remained until bottling this year. Antonio Ferrari was a wine merchant and negociant in Piedmont who in the mid-20th century developed an interest in the grapes of Puglia.

Barolo, 1949

Marchesi di Barolo

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.

Cavendish port (South Africa), 1949

South Africa, Port, 30 years in oak.

South African fortified red wines have a long and distinguished history dating from the early 19th century, not long after the creation of modern Port in Portugal.As the Portuguese port industry obtained an embargo on calling anything 'port' not emanating from Portugal, this fortified wine from the Cape has to be called 'Vin de Liqueur'. Today many of the fortified red producers, concentrated around Calitzdorp in the Klein Karoo, use Portuguese varietals and make wines that compete in quality with similar wines made in Portugal.

As can be seen on the label, the text relates "The wine of a single outstanding vintage in the Cape, which has been late bottled in this country after over 30 years maturation in oak wood".
