Port Wine Old Vines Vintage Warre 2020
350th Anniversary Edition
The Warre 2020 Vintage Old Vines Port is made exclusively from 80 to 100 year old mixed horse-rooted vines from two of Warre’s estates: Quinta da Cavadinha (53%) and Quinta do Retiro (47%).
These superb old vines produced just 380g per vine at Cavadinha and 240g per vine at Retiro. It took three vines to produce a bottle of this Vintage Port – typically it requires only one vine. The cooler aspect of these two properties was of great benefit in 2020 and the old vines were incredibly hardy.
This is the first time we have produced a Warre’s Vintage Port exclusively from the old vines on two of our estates. The wine is intensely fruity with an unequalled concentration and elegance that belies the conditions of the year.
