The Last Drop Distillers Centenario Very Old Colheita Port Duo 1870 & 1970
This phenomenal duo is comprised of two very old Tawny Ports, from 1870 and 1970. One hundred years separate these two extraordinary ports, but they are both from the same vineyards – across the river from Quinta Santa Julia, the 18th century family estate of the van Zeller family, in the Baixo Corgo.
1870: Tasting Notes by Neal Martin:
Wine Critic for Vinous, previously of The Wine Advocate. Author of Pomerol
“It has an arresting bouquet with scents of black plum, rosehip syrup, Manuka honey, fig and grilled walnut… Beautifully balanced, fresh and slightly viscous in texture, this is a complex Tawny Port whose age has not diminished just how delicious it tastes. It just goes out to offer gorgeous mulberry, clove, eau de vie and Chinese five-spice notes throughout its harmonious and poised finish. This is just a sublime Tawny of class and pedigree and it comes highly recommended. 97 Points. Drink.”
1970: Tasting Notes by Neal Martin:
“Clove, toffee, wild fennel and smoke aromas. The palate is sweet and crisp on the entry with a tang of Seville orange marmalade and quince. There is great tension here thanks to the fine seam of acidity with a fresh, almost “zippy” finish that belies its age. A fine Colheita Tawny. 93 Points. Drink.”
