Highly Rated Wines arrow Warres 1994 Vintage Port



Warres 1994 Vintage Port

Price: $100.00


warres_label_largeWarre’s, founded in 1670, was the first
British Port company established in
Portugal and therefore the pioneer of a
great tradition; its history is synonymous
with that of Port itself. Warre’s Ports are
distinguished for their structure, power and
softly perfumed nose. They have a
particularly fresh and elegant style.
Warre’s premium wines are sourced from
Quinta da Cavadinha and Quinta do Bom
Retiro Pequeno, two of the finest estates of
the Douro valley. Warre’s Vintage Ports
are renowned the world over for their
excellence and are consistently placed
amongst the best in comparative tastings.
Tasting Notes
Excellent deep colour. Very scented, with
a luscious and concentrated black berry fruit nose, combined with seductive floralhints. Rich and supple fruit flavours on the palate and a backbone of firm tannins.Finishes with superb richness and impressive length.The Viticultural Year After a number of exceptionally dry years,the very wet 1993/4 winter came as a great relief and replaced valuable ground waterreserves. March and April were beautifully warm, rapidly bringing on thedevelopment of the vines. Unfortunately, a
cold and wet period in May affected the flowering that started on 29th May at ourQuinta da Cavadinha and this reduced thepotential final crop somewhat. The weather for the remainder of thespring and summer was ideal with thevines developing under perfect conditions.Two days of light rain in early Augustwere followed again by a hot couple ofweeks. Farmers became anxious to start picking, remembering the disastrous 1993vintage (which was ruined by Septemberrain).
However, at Quinta da Cavadinha and our other top vineyards in the Rio Torto valleywe held off and after a couple of days ofrefreshing rain on the 15th and 17th the weather cleared again and the vintagestarted on the 29th September at Cavadinhawith the grapes in better condition than
had been seem for many years. The vintage took place with warm dry days andcool nights. The musts showed excellentcolour and beautiful floral aromas.
