1977 Dow's Vintage Port
Offer published: 01/03/2021
We're lucky enough to have a good-sized parcel of perfectly mature Dow's Vintage Port for sale. Offered with perfect provenance having been professionally stored at Seckford for a well-known, long-standing (rock star) customer. Dow's 1977 is on its plateau of maturity; showing delicate, poise and finesse, wrapped around a powerful core. Its youthful inkiness has faded to tawny-garnet, the angular shoulders given away to sweet and mellow fruit, the quintessential fist in a velvet glove. For maximum pleasure, this vintage should be drunk now and over the next decade.

"Pale ruby with an even paler rim. As soon as the cork was just half-pulled, the (admittedly small) room was filled with the aroma of candied rose petals. This is surely at its peak with the spirit just peeking through at the end after a luxuriously smooth texture. Medium sweetness and really quite delicate."
