    A port intensely fruit driven with unparalleled concentration and elegance

    "The 2020 Vintage Port Vinhas Velhas is a commemorative year of the 350th anniversary of Warre’s. It is a field blend aged for 18 months in old oak vats. It comes in with 113 grams of residual sugar. Aromatic and tight, this is a typically elegant Warre’s, a bottling that always seems to show mid-palate finesse. With a couple of hours of decanting, it showed more nuanced fruit too, but this initially finished with a little harshness. The alcohol is currently beaten down by the fruit, but I’d like to see it develop a bit as it holds its balance. It’s fair to note, as Charles Symington did, that it was only in bottle a few weeks. A decanted version showed far better, a very good and promising sign. This has upside potential in the cellar. There were just 2,400 bottles produced."

    STORY BEHIND THE WINE: 

    A Port made exclusively from the deep rooted, horse ploughed, 80 to 100-year old mixed vines (field blend) at two Warre's estates. It took three vines to produce one bottle of this vintage port - typically it requires just one. This is the first time Warre's have produced a vintage port exclusively from the old vines at two of their estates.
