Warre's 1994 Vintage Port comes from one of the finest port vintages of the latter half of the 20th century which was universally declared; producing wines of wonderfully ripe fruit with superb ageing potential.

Warre’s Vintage Ports are renowned for their poise, elegance and balance. Warre's is also the oldest British port house (dating back to 1670), is drawn from fruit from the Symington’s family prime vineyard site: the Quinta da Cavadinha, located in the Pinhão Valley.

As with other port houses Warre’s maintain a lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia, the buildings housing the largest oak vat used by any house: which holds the equivalent of over 178 000 bottles of port!

"One of the finest Warres I have ever tasted, this opaque purple-colored wine is made in a drier style (a la Dow), 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. Tasters should take note of the wealth of peppery, licorice-scented and flavored raspberry and blackcurrant fruit. Look for it to be ready to drink in 10-12 years, and keep for 30+." This is a profound example of Warre vintage port."

”Displays fabulous concentration and complex character with it's layers of very sweet fruit, chocolate and cherry aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins. Long finish with plenty of grip. Beautiful wine.” Wine Spectator
