1994 Vintage Port Trio 3 x 750ml
Officially the ultimate gift for the Port drinker this year.
The 1994 vintage was so loved by wine critics, experts, writers and drinkers all around the globe, the Symington family has decided to issue a limited re-release in Autumn 2021, complete with a stylish wooden gift box and 25 years of bottle age. This collection contains three exceptional Ports: one of the greatest Dow’s of the second half of the 20th Century, a classic Graham’s that might well be the best of the post-World War II era, and probably the finest Warre’s ever produced. Demand for this rare case is likely to be high, so don’t expect it to hang around for long. It contains one full-sized bottle of each of the following and would make a wonderful gift for marking a special 1994 anniversary:
- Dow’s Vintage Port 1994: 96 points, “It’s a beauty, with all that Dow power and structure that I’ve loved over the years – even after some hours of decanting. Intensely concentrated in flavour, without being jammy, this lingers on the gripping finish after starting with a touch of mint.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
- Graham’s Vintage Port 1994: 96 points, “In a Port tasting, tasting Graham’s is almost like tasting a big, rich, succulent Merlot after a group of blockbuster, tannic Cabernets. Sweeter and more obvious than many Ports, the opaque purple-coloured 1994 is fruity, powerful, and rich, with an addictive hedonistic quality… As always, this is a showy, flamboyant Port that has the advantage of being slightly sweeter than other 1994s. A great Graham’s.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
- Warre’s Vintage Port 1994: 94 points, “One of the finest Warre’s I have ever tasted, this opaque, purple-coloured wine is made in a drier style, yet it is expressive, extremely full-bodied, with superb richness, purity, and well-integrated alcohol and tannin. It possesses a great mid-palate as well as impressive length… This is a profound example of Warre Vintage Port.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Described by Jancis Robinson as a “potentially exceptional year for vintage Port”, 1994 is a year that any fortified wine aficionado should be all over. After several very dry years in succession, the wet winter of 1993/94 allowed the ground refill its water reserves. This proved invaluable during the very hot summer to come. The sugar readings taken at harvest showed this was a perfectly balanced vintage, which probably explain why there are so many references to “classic” and “best ever” in the critics’ reviews of the Symington family’s wines.
The Symington family are trusted hands because they are the world’s leading producer of premium Port and the biggest vineyard owner in the Douro Valley – a UNESCO World Heritage Site of jaw-dropping beauty. The company is also B Corp Certified, which means they are also on it when it comes to the environment, sustainability, their people, their supply chain and giving back to the community.
