Single Harvest Tawny Port
1963 Colheita Port - 50cl Bottle. Exclusive to VWP.
This rare port-wine has been stored in seasoned oak casks since the 1962 harvest until it was bottled this year.
Tasting Notes: The 1963 Port from Palmer has a light oak colour with a verdant edge on the rim highlighting a colheita of exceptional age and quality. Much elegance on the nose with orange peel, walnuts, figs and a touch of honey. On the palate there is a lightness that is balanced by a good acidity. This port wine delivers a beautiful flavour supported by a long, long finish. Outstanding.
The wine is ready to drink and does not require decanting.

"Very advanced, pale and tawny in colour and in nature but still with lovely citrus and marmalade flavours all through the palate and aftertaste. Quite delicious." Review on the Port Forum
Adams was an importer who brought port into the UK in pipes and bottled it under their own brand. Adams have long since passed into history leaving a small amount of very fine vintage port.

This wine is made from grapes harvested in various vineyards located on hills in the Valpolicella zone (Mezzane and Tregnago hills). Different sources and different grape varieties are important to obtain well-balanced wines with the fine structure that only a few single areas in the Valpolicella zone can provide. 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.

Vintage Armagnac (Comes in original Sigognac Box as illustrated)
In armagnac, legend has it that, one day long ago, baron de sigognac took all the traditional clocks out of his cellars. fascinated by the mystery surrounding the way armagnac ages, he had some very strange timepieces made. on these clocks, the face had ten divisions instead of twelve. the seconds had become years, the big hand moved only once a decade and the hour hand marked the centuries.
Baron de sigognac had found the core of the mystery of armagnac…
The legend adds that, with time, baron de sigognac came to trust only his palate in telling the age of an armagnac. the clocks were left unwound.

The port house Sociedad do Vinhos Porto Constantino was founded in 1877 and was a independent producer until it was acquired by the reputable Ferreira group.
The 1963 Constantino from the outstanding vintage is now a mature tawny colour. On the nose the bouquet is caramel and burnt sugar. The palate has a mature and generous taste with some sweetness left. Nice long finish. A beautiful mature port.

Hedges and Butler Labels | Embossed capsules
A superb port from a top, top vintage which has certainly continued to improve over the last forty nine years. It is close to its optimum with an excellent structure, complex multi-faceted taste and aroma. Very smooth, slightly sweet and sublimely easy to drink featuring attractive, mellow fruitcake flavours and lightness on the palate.
"A beautiful rich nose of roasted coffee beans, cherry liqueur and Asian spice. The palate is smooth, hedonistic and loaded with sweet red fruits such as strawberries and raspberries. There is a saturated quality to this Dow, a sense of completeness that I love.

The 1963 Gonzalas Byas Vintage Port from the legendary 1963 Vintage is from a good cellar and has excellent provenance. The company is more famous for its sherry but started selling port in the early 1900's. The main quinta was Quinta do Sabordella and was the sole purchaser of wines from Quinta do Roriz in the early 20th century (then owned by the Van Zellar family). The brand disappeared when it was acquired by Sandeman now part of Sogrape.
