Quinta do Noval Port, 1955

Vintage Port (unlabelled embossed capsules very top shoulder )

"Red mahogany in colour, 30% opaque. Gentle on the nose, with a pleasant and mildly fruity smell. Modest entry, with modest levels of fruit and a gentle acidic structure. Aeration brings out more fruit. Warm and pleasant afrertaste, full of orange peel and with a lingering finish. 86/100. Was significantly better a day later when it had put on substantial weight." Review on The Port Forum

Price: £399.00 (3 in Stock)

This 1955 vintage port from Real Vinicola is a real rarity. The colour of barley sugar. A faint smell of caramel on the nose. Quite thick and sweet in the mouth. Lots of barley sugar, brown sugar and burnt toffee over the top of bitter orange. Very pleasant.

Sandeman Vintage Port, 1955

MAGNUM Vintage port

a very rare magnum of Sandeman 1955 Vintage Port

Sandeman’s own bottling (in Oporto) seems lighter and more mature in colour, perhaps softer than a more recently tasted English bottling: medium deep colour; soft, sweet bouquet with some depth; very good flavour, firm, well balanced.

Taylor's Port, 1955

Vintage Port (Unlabelled Label, Vintage on Capsule)

"An opage blockbuster when young, astringent and unready up until the early 1980's. In the early 1990's still fairly deep coloured; a vast, deep, high-toned, spicy nose, fairly sweet, full bodied packed with fruit extract and tannin and acidity.." Marcus Bent ****

Taylor's Port, 1955

Vintage Port
Unlabelled | Embossed Capsules | Very Top Shoulder Level

Taylors 1955 Vintage Port.
Review
The only vintage Taylor’s declared in the 1950s. According to the Fladgate Partnership, ‘one of the most underrated vintages of the century’. Taylor’s own two great vineyards in the Douro, Quinta de Vargellas and Quinta de Terra Feita. Both are categorised grade A - the highest possible rating. In years when Taylor’s produces a classic vintage, wines from these two estates are blended together. As they are some 20 miles apart, and subject to very different micro climates, they combine to produce a powerful, long lived and complex vintage port. In 1955 there was a heatwave at the end of April and early May.
