1969 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: 1969-port-wineA vintage Port from the 1969 vintage makes a perfect 51 year old wine gift for a birthday or anniversary. Some excellent Colheita (Tawny) Ports were produced from the 1969 harvest and these are highly recommended by our wine buyer. The 1969 vintage was good enough to yield a few single Quinta vintage ports, notably Taylors Vargellas and some exceptional Colheita ports.
 
Italian: 1969 was a good vintage for Italian wines. The weather was good throughout the year enabling the grapes to reach a high degree of ripeness. Of particular note are the heavyweight, long-lived wines such as Barolo, Brunello and lighter wines such as Chianti and Valpolicella. The wines are now fully mature and still drinking well.
 
Bordeaux: The 1969 wine vintage was unkind to Bordeaux reds. Rain during the September harvest contributed to what was a small crop of light-weight wines that lacked longevity. Only first growth wines will be drinkable. However, sweet wines from the regions of Sauternes and Barsac were very good in this year and will last for many more years.

1969 D'Oliveiras Madeira, 1969

Sercial, Madeira
Special Offer | Was £199 | now £179

This 1969 Madeira from D’Oliveira has flavors of Raisins, plums, walnuts and a hint of prunes in this wonderful Madeira. The scent fills the room as soon as it is open. Pouring it into the glass you notice the crystal clear golden brown color with hints of red. You swirl and smell, noticing the raisins and the walnuts. You take a sip, the flavors of raisins and plums fills the front of your mouth, not too sweet. You swish and swallow, the walnuts taking over in the back of the mouth. The taste lingers… *Bottled in 2015

Madeira is an extremely rare wine to find being a unique wine produced in the Madeira island.

Barolo, 1969

Sale

F.lli Lucchini - Riserva Speciale
- 5 Litre Bottle -
Special offer | was £599 | Now £349

A truly unique gift! One only - A rare 5 Litre Bottle.

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 with no problem at all.

Kinclaith had the distinction of being the last malt distillery to be built in Glasgow. It was part of the complex housing the Strathclyde grain distillery. after completion in 1957, the vast bulk of its production presumably went into the Long John Blends.

Kinclaith has always been extremely rare as a single malt bottling. This bottling is from a very small number of casks still known to exist today.

Chateau Margaux, 1969

Margaux 1er Grand Cru Classe
Level upper shoulder, label slightly glue stained

The 1969 Chateau Margaux has been fully mature for more than two decades. It is medium ruby with some amber/orange colour at the edges, possessing a light-intensity, fragrant bouquet suggestive of berry fruit and oak. On the palate, the flavours reveal adequate fruit and concentration, but the acidity is sharp in the finish.
