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.
