Classic Vintage1975

A wet winter in 1975 was followed by a long dry Summer with almost no rain with the exception of a heavy thunderstorm in May. The harvest started on 6th October. Due to the September rain, yields were generally higher than had been expected.

Reproached when young for being on the light side, the best of the 1975 Vintage Ports have defied their critics and have achieved great elegance and breeding maturity.

 

TASTING NOTES

A light, feminine nose of cherry, wild strawberry and a touch of pencil-lead. Not complex, but clean and fresh. Medium bodied palate, very fruit driven but lacking a little structure. Clean, attractive, smooth texture, but a less intellectual Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port to drink without too much thought.

ACCOLADES

The best 1975 by far.

Michael Broadbent

Easy drinking at 36 years of age.
