Graham's Port, 1942

Vintage Port (in neck, unlabelled)

Declared by some shippers, despite the war, and in some cases declared and bottled in 1945 to celebrate Victory. First Vintage to be bottled exclusively in Portugal, rather than shipped in cask as was customary.

Little known, and production was small due to continued post-war restrictions, but well-cellared wines are still a pleasure.

tasting note year
This is a silky, classy, elegant, mature Vintage Port with a complex character of fruit on the nose and palate. Medium red with a lighter edge, delicate fresh raspberry and currant aromas, medium-bodied, with silky, elegant fruit flavours, medium tannins and a very sweet finish.

Price: £1495.00 (1 in Stock)

Taylor's Port, 1942

Vintage Port

This is a very rare wartime vintage in excellent condition.

A very dry winter followed by a cold spring caused flowering to be late, but some rain in June brought the grapes forward. The vintage started generally on the 2nd September; weather uncertain from the 28th and on the whole dull and cool with slow fermentations.

Tokaji, 1942

Aszu Essencia (Half litre, 50cl)

This rare 1942 Tokaji Aszu Essencia is a sweet wine of stunning concentration and complexity. A rich complex wine with incredibly deep concentration, bitter oranges, ginger, manuka honey aromas and flavours, but though super sweet it is perfectly balanced with succulent citrus acidity. Harmony, balance and depth are absolutely world class.

After the Essencia, the Aszú Essencia (often confounded with the Essencia) is the second highest quality level among Tokaj wines. Its preparation is the same as that for the Aszú, and it is produced only in excellent years. The quality level is not indicated anymore by the number of puttonyos.

Price: £330.00 (4 in Stock)
