Quinta do Cachao Vertical on Wed 23rd October 2019

Post by forest26 »

Set for Week commencing 23rd October 2019.

Miguel from Messias and myself have arranged for 23rd October. There is no need to contribute physical bottles as Miguel is providing most of the ports gratis. Where I have had to fill some gaps (I am still struggling with the 63) there will be a nominal cost.


I visited Caves Messias in N D Gaia a few weeks ago. Between Messias and myself, we can construct an almost complete vertical of Quinta do Cachao VP. There is an offer from Messias to help put this together. Let me know your thoughts - If there is interest and I will start to firm up....

(My assumption is that PF members do not hold a lot of these and that most (if not all) of the bottles will come from Messias / myself.

Vintages

  1. 1960 Cachao - confirmed

Yes please.

I have owned two bottles of port from Messias - the 1963 Cachão was opened for my birthday in 2013 and the Messias 1977 colheita was drunk in April 2010. In addition, I have tasted Cachão from 1965, 1966, 1967 and 1970 and Messias from 1970 and 2011. And that's it!

Thanks for the idea Tony.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

From my chats with Messias, Messias Vigario always said, that 60 was their first Vintage and 47 their first Colheita. We might want to include some of them as well as they really are better in quality than the Vintages.

Hi I will need to start organising this - last week in September is looking promising. Any comments before I finalise?

With 22 Vintages, table space will be a constraint.

I and one or two others at last night's tasting think that September is still the best month for this vertical and so what about earlier in the month-say 18th?

Might have to kick this into Jan / Feb 2019. The Messias guys are a little busy early September and after that I am tied up until the New Year.
