2020 - A 1970 horizontal

Post by AHB » 14:32 Wed 06 Jun 2018

Last night the suggestion was made that we might want to organise a large tasting of 1970 ports in 2020. Early preparation might be well worthwhile to allow us to accumulate as large a selection of 1970 shippers as possible. Between us, we can select what we will each acquire and what we will each be able to contribute to such a tasting.

I know of 1970 ports being produced and sold under the following labels. * indicates that I also know of someone who would be able to contribute a bottle to a tasting in 2020.
Amandiao (Real Vinicola)
*Andresen
*Avery
*Barros
*Berry Brothers Selection
*Borges
*Burmester
*Butler Nephew
*Calem
*Calem Foz
*Cockburn
*Croft
*Croft Roeda
*Dalva
*Delaforce
*Diez Hermanos
*Dow
*Dow Bomfim
*Feist
*Ferreira
*Feuerheerd
*Flagman
*Fonseca
*Gonzalez Byass
*Gould Campbell
*Graham
*Hunt Roope
*Hutcheson
*Kopke
*Kopke Sao Luiz
*Krohn
*Lopes (Douro Wine Shippers & Growers Association)
*Mackenzie
*Maia (Douro Wine Shippers & Growers Association)
Marks & Spencer own selection
*Martinez
*Martins (Hutcheson)
Messias
*Messias Cachao
*Morgan Brothers
*Niepoort
*Offley Boa Vista
*Poças
*Quarles Harris
*Quinta do Noval
*Quinta do Noval Nacional
*Quinta do Sibio (Real Companhia Vinicola)
*Ramos Pinto
*Rebello Valente
*Rocha
*Royal Oporto
*Royal Oporto Carvalhas
*Sandeman
*Santos Junior
*Smith Woodhouse
*Taylor
*Taylor Vargellas
*Thienpont (Butler Nephew)
Viera de Souza
*Warre
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

I know of one other label which produced a 1970 (of which I have a couple of bottles):
Amandio (Real Companhia Vinicola do Norte de Portugal)

I also have some Kopke Q. Sao Luiz, Cálem and Messias Cachao form 1970 (If possible, I would like to sign up for this tasting :-) )

I have a few 1970. Some in greater quantities than others. And I’m free that day, if there is space!

I have a suspicion that this will prove to be a very popular tasting. I haven't opened a waiting list yet because with the benefit of planning so far ahead, we have the ability to seek out two bottles of each wine and so accommodate up to 28 people.

But please, rather than tease me with vague statements like "I have a few 1970", let me know what you have. It doesn't have to be in thread - you can tell me by PM or by email. But if the list above starts to identify that we need to find a Ferreira, for example, we can make sure that when one comes up for auction one of us manages to acquire it!

I would like to be at the tasting. I need to check what limited 70 ports I have and check conditions and that they will be good for 2020.

Excellent idea !

Of those not mentioned so far, I have Butler Nephew, Ferrerira, Gonzalez-Byass & Sandeman (only 1 bottle of the Sandeman) which I would be happy to contribute. If there is space, I would like to attend also, but I am happy to contribute the bottles regardless.

I've been meaning to get back over there and this may be the perfect excuse. I've got a number of 70's (I'll check which shortly)

Put me down.

Well this sounds fabulous! I don't have any '70s yet but if I know what's missing I can work towards acquiring it.

Great idea - assuming obvious ones covered - will work on the problem ones.
