1927 Very Old Tawny Port

Real Companhia Velha

98Average Score
flagPort / Portugal

This 1927 Very Old Tawny Port comes from the oldest wine estate in Portugal – Real Companhia Velha, founded in 1756. The 1927 was released in 2021 to celebrate the 265th anniversary of the estate and was awarded an impressive 98 points from Decanter magazine in a review of the finest Ports. The wine has a deep, tawny colour with a powerful, aromatic intensity. The old oak, wood polish and rich rancio aromas are interspersed with opulent, boozy Christmas cake, marzipan, dried citrus peel and sandalwood notes. The palate has fantastic viscosity, which is perhaps not that surprising for the wine’s age, but the amazing acidity that backs it up is. For a 94-year-old wine, the vibrancy is staggering. The palate is packed with flavour and beautifully integrated with dense bursts of sultanas, molasses, dried figs, macadamia nuts and toffee notes. It is so full of energy.
