1955 Kopke Port, 1955

Single Harvest Colheita Port

Kopke Port is the oldest port house. Established in 1638 by Nicolau Kopke and his son Cristiano, who came to Portugal as representatives of the Hanseatic League, the House has been run through the generations by several representatives of the Kopke family, obtaining an excellent reputation for its wines.

Port Buyers recommendation: "The 1955 Kopke Port represents excellent value particularly when compared to the vintage ports. The quality is outstanding (see notes) and the provenance is excellent. These wines have been bottled from cask exclusively for VWP in 2014." Dr Tony Carter, Wine Buyer Vintage Wine and Port.

Cockburn Port, 1955

Vintage Port
Excellent provenance

Popped and decanted for three hours. This is a great bottle of old port. The 1955 Cockburn's retains subtle fruitiness along with toffee, smoke, and dark chocolate notes. All of the flavors were melded together and the port was slightly sweet without even a trace of alcohol. Great port!

Fonseca Port, 1955

Vintage Port, Oporto Bottled - excellent condition and provenance.

The 1955 was the only year declared by Fonseca in the 50s. An underrated, indeed almost forgotten, vintage that deserves to be rediscovered.

Notes on the year
The year was marked by an excellent ripening season with hot weather in July and August meaning that the crop was perfectly mature towards the end of September. Most of the well known shippers declared 1955.

Tasting Note
Medium to deep red, with a remarkably youthful ruby edge. Incredible richness and almost young grapey fruit character. As it breathes it opens to reveal spicy mature dark fruit aromas. On the palate it fills the mouth with round, marzipan richness mixed with full chocolate flavour.

Mackenzie Vintage Port , 1955

Vintage Port (imported by John Harvey and Son of Bristol)

A lovely vintage port still showing nicely.

Review:
Very dark for its age. 70% opacity. Coffee on the nose, perhaps café au lait. The palate is medium weight; green humbugs; menthol and liquorice.

Martinez Vintage Port, 1955

Vintage Port
Plain Label | Level In Neck

The 1955 Martinez Vintage Port has a "Deep red colour, clear centre, pale orange on the rim. A lovely nose of oranges and tobacco. Sweet entry, with the oranges - blood oranges - dominating the initial flavours. Lots of acidity giving the fruit plenty of support. The texture thickens in the mouth - great development, thick and flavourful. Excellent wine. Enormous aftertaste. Cedar wood, cranberries and with a lovely sweetness lasting all the way through the long length. Improved in the glass for the short time it remained in there! A superb wine and with plenty of life still to come; my port of the night.
