Warres Vintage Port 1.5L MAGNUM 1977 CONFIRM VINTAGE

Touriga & Tinto Douro Portugal
Three great estates, Quinta da Cavadinha, Quinta do Retiro Antigo and Quinta da Telhada, are operated by families who have been working the harvests for generations. All fruit is hand picked, hand sorted and to a great extent, tread by foot in the traditional old world way. Ferments are arrested by the addition of aguardente, a pure grape spirit of 77% alcohol, followed by extended ageing in an heirloom of large wooden casks. The noble old Warres vines, decades of age, often yield less than a half litre of fermentable juice per vintage.

Wine has been made in the Douro region of Espana since the days of early Roman colonization, although it was not until 1756 that the area was formally delineated by Marquês de Pombal, making it the world's oldest demarcated wine region. With a history in the Port trade dating back centuries, the style and superb quality of Warre's Ports are defined by the exceptional integrity of their heirloom vineyards.
Very dark colour, concentrated inky black. Lovely fresh aromas of violets. Layer and layer of ripe blackberry fruit, intensely rich and full bodied. Sweetness and tannins bind this wine together to form a perfect harmonious structure.
