Classic Vintage1980

One of the driest Winters on record. A poor flowering under wet and cold conditions, but the Summer of 1980 was hot and dry. When the harvest started on 29th September weather remained generally dry and picking conditions stayed excellent for the duration of the harvest. The fermentations were quite short, but the Port wines showed excellent colour and body.

 

TASTING NOTES

Ruby, cherry red tones gently fading at edges. Attractive fresh fruit and spice bouquet. Intense; surprisingly youthful. An elegant, nicely weighted and balanced wine. Firm full fruit flavours with a freshness that carries on through to the finish.

ACCOLADES

Big deep colour, lots of fruit and grip, lovely balance, really good extract and shows more class than the vintage is known for.
