Butler Nephew 1970 Vintage Port

Vintage Port is a specific style of Ruby Port which is made only in exceptional years and from the ripest grapes.  The fermented wine is fortified before being aged for 2 years in massive oak vats which preserve the ripe fruit character.  Upon bottling, the wines continue to age and can reward patient maturation for many decades.

Butler, Nephew & Co. were a long-established Port House until they were purchased by Gonzalez Byass in the 1950s.  The brand name of Butler Nephew was continued by Gonzalez Byass until it finally became surplus to their requirements in 1989.

This lot is for 12 bottles in their original wooden case - opened for the first time for our listing and photography.

Please note that there shall be a shipping charge for 12 bottles applied to this lot.

These bottles are in excellent condition: label & foil/wax seal intact; cork/closure secure, no leakage.

Currency Estimate

Important: Currency exchange rates are constantly changing; this feature is to be used as a guide price only. All final transactions occur in British Pounds (£).
