VAN ZELLERS & CO XIX THE RARE PORT COLLECTION

REGION

Douro

ALCOHOL

20%

GRAPE VARIETIES

This Rare Port Collection is a lifetime achievement. It is the unveiling of three Very Very Old Tawny Portos that have silently been ageing in old oak casks for over a century. Each bottle is a drop of history. A unique occurrence. A rare moment that may never be repeated again in this lifetime. These Very Very Old Tawny Portos are a tribute to Liberty, Family and Poetry.

TASTING NOTES

Crafted by Liberty
With a deep mahogany core, surrounded by a halo of olive green, this Very Old Tawny Port shows an unrivalled complexity. Opulent aromas rise from the glass, predominantly of figs and dried raisins, but also hints of flowers, caramelized orange, soft notes of curry spices and touches of tobacco leaf with an added discrete scent of the fine oak where the wine has aged for well over a century. Rich and mellow, it has, what seems to be, an everlasting and mouth-watering finish.

97 Points – Sarah Ahmed, in Decanter Magazine

Crafted by Family
A dark mahogany core, with a bright rim. Fruity and open nose, with notes of dark, bitter-sweet toffee, dried figs, and a tone of caramelized citric fruits like bitter orange, and apricots. Incredibly balanced, with an intense sweetness being softly adorned by an equally bright freshness.

Crafted by Poetry
Only time can create such layered notes in a wine and poetry helps words describe the deep sensations it sparks. Concentrated, to quite a magical touch, this luscious wine has a pale amber halo and a greeny brown core. Notes of bitter orange, mocha, raisins, figs, and some floral touches make this expressive Very Old Tawny Port incredibly persistent, to nearly an endless finish. This wine speaks with a mystery of its own.
